As many of you know I have been involved with "motionball" for many years and this will be my 7th year participating in the Toronto Marathon of Sport!

Marathon of Sport Toronto 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!

On May 25, 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. As a Phys Ed and Special Education teacher, I see firsthand the benefit of inclusion and equal opportunity within sport.

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

Thank you very much for your support,  Katie
