Marathon of Sport

On July 9, 2016 in Hamilton

The inaugural motionball Marathon of Sport Hamilton presented by Travel Nation Canada was our first ever event in Hamilton, welcoming 14 Teams of young professionals to fun filled day of sportsat McMaster University!

Participants teamed up alongside local Special Olympics athletes and together as a Team, competed in a variety of sports & activities including basketball, bocce, benchball, football, soccer and ultimate!

The playing field wasn’t the only place where athletes competed. Each team of 10 participants raised a minimum of $1000. Thanks to their incredible support, we crushed our $20,000 fundraising goal raising $32,000 net in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!
