Marathon of Sport Calgary

On June 24, 2017 in Calgary

We Did Something Special on the Playing Field!

The 2017 motionball Marathon of Sport Calgary was our best yet, welcoming 40 Teams of young professionals to Mount Royal University for a fun-filled day of athletic competition in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

Participants teamed up with local Special Olympics Alberta athletes and together, they competed in a variety of sports & activities including basketball, benchball, football, soccer, kickball, human foosball, tic tac toe relay and more!

Thanks to their incredible support, we set a motionball Calgary record, raising over $180,000 net in support of Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

For more information about the event and to learn how you can join us on the field in 2018, see below!
