Hello everyone!

On March 21st, I am volunteering at an all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. This event allows individuals to sign up as teams and compete alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of fun sports!

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

At motionball’s request, 70% of the funds raised at Marathon of Sport are sent to the local Provincial Chapter, which in our case will be Special Olympics BC. 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.

For the past 4 years, I have been a volunteer with the Special Olympics swim team in Burnaby. During that time, I've come to appreciate how important and beneficial the Special Olympics programs are to these athletes. Please take the time to consider donating to this cause, or sign up with a team by emailing us at sfu@motionball.com.

Thank you for your support, and for taking the time to read this letter!
