Hey Family and Friends!
On January 18, I am, once again, participating in an all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport! :) All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Throughout the day, I will be competing alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports such as basketball, soccer, bench ball, ultimate, floor hockey, and more!

Participation in this event last year truly did open my heart to a wider world of human talent and potential. Sport and physical activity are vital aspects of everyone's life. There are as many as 200 million people in this world with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics offer adults and children with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to achieve a healthier lifestyle, get involved in their communities and help them reach their full potential.

Marathon of Sport is organized by motionball. Motionball is a not-for-profit whose mandate is to introduce our community to the Special Olympics movement through integrated social and sporting events. Motionball proudly hosts 33 annual events in 19 cities across the country and since inception in 2002, has donated over $10 million to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

Where exactly do the donations go? 70% of all funds raised at Marathon of Sport support locally, Special Olympics Ontario Chapter, targetting grassroot programs. 25% stays with the Special Olympics Canada Foundation to ensure the long-term stability of the movement, and the other 5% is directed to the #NOGOODWAY Campaign, which aims to end the use of the R-word (retard) in everyday conversation.
