On June 22, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called the motionball Marathon of Sport. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Throughout the day, I will be competing in a variety of sports alongside local Special Olympics athletes. Last year our athlete Jordan was a swimmer with Down Syndrome. She just recently went to Dubai and placed 4th at World's and man is she is fast!

motionball has had a direct impact on these athletes by giving them the chance to interact with young professionals and positive role models who look more at what he can do - not what he can't.

As you all know, Special Olympics and athletics are near and dear to our family's hearts. We actually started Payton in Special Olympics Early Start program this year that is partially funded by motionball and of course through fabulous volunteers.

Marathon of Sport Calgary is part of a larger national movement called motionball for Special Olympics, a non-profit organization that empowers young Canadians to be leaders in their communities, raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics so that individuals with intellectual disabilities can lead happier, healthier lives. Special Olympics provides opportunities for over 47,000 Canadians with intellectual disabilities to experience the transformative power of sport. Today, motionball proudly hosts over 40 events across Canada and has delivered over $10.8 million to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

By making a donation to motionball, you'll be supporting athletes like Jordan and together we can level the playing field for thousands of Canadians with intellectual disabilities.

Thank you very much for your support,  Jackie
