On June 22, myself and Team Flames will be 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 - an organization near and dear to my heart.

My younger brother Jari is a Special Olympian and his participation in a variety of sports has impacted his life in a multitude of ways. Being able to play alongside his peers and be a part of a team has allowed him to make new friends, be more involved in his community, gain confidence, and improve his physical health.

Team Flames has been a long-time supporter of Marathon Of Sport and hope to surpass our past fundraising efforts, making sure Special Olympics Canada can provide all the necessary resources for athletes across the nation.

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 Jari and together we can level the playing field for thousands of Canadians with intellectual disabilities.

Thank you very much for your support!
