On June 22, we are 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 with the majority of funds staying right here in Cape Breton. Throughout the day, our team will be competing in a variety of sports alongside local Special Olympics athletes like Ruth and Chris that we competed with in the 2018 Marathon of Sport.
Marathon of Sport Cape Breton 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 Chris and Ruth and together we can level the playing field for thousands of Canadians with intellectual disabilities.
Thank you very much for your support,
