Marathon of Sport

On October 4, 2015 in Ottawa

We Did Something Special On the Playing Field!

The 6th annual motionball Marathon of Sport Ottawa welcomed 100 young professionals to Carleton University on Sunday October 4th in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

Participants enjoyed a fun day of athletic competition that saw motionball supporters compete alongside local Special Olympics Ontario athletes in a variety of sports & activities including basketball, soccer, flag football, and ultimate!

The playing field wasn’t the only place where athletes competed. Each team of 10 participants raised a minimum of $1000 ($100 per person) through pledges. Thanks to their incredible fundraising efforts we raised $10,000 net in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!
