Marathon of Sport Kitchener

We Did Something Special on the Playing Field!

The inaugural motionball Marathon of Sport Kitchener welcomed 6 Teams and over 65 young professionals to Alumni Field at Laurier University! It was the perfect day for sports as participants teamed up with local Special Olympics athletes and competed in basketball, soccer, bocce, ultimate frisbee, handball, and football!

motionball was proud to donate 70% of the funds raised from this event to Special Olympics Ontario. This funding is directed to support programs for local athletes in the community. 25% is directed to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, whose mission is to ensure the long term financial integrity of the Special Olympics movement in Canada and to fund long term athlete and volunteer growth. The remaining 5% will help grow the #nogoodway Campaign aiming to end the use of the R-word (retard) in everyday conversation. We’re encouraging Canadians to make the choice to eliminate the R-word from their vocabulary and empower them to take #nogoodway to their circles of influence.

motionball’s mandate is to introduce the next generation of volunteers and donors to the Special Olympics movement through integrated social and sporting events. motionball now hosts 24 annual events in 16 cities across Canada. motionball is proud to have donated $7M to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation since our inception in 2002.
