Marathon of Sport

On June 6, 2015 in Vancouver

We Did Something Special on the Playing Field!

The 2015 motionball Marathon of Sport Vancouver welcomed 26 Teams of young professionals to EA Sports Field on Saturday June 6th for an full day of sport 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 British Columbia athletes in a variety of sports & activities including basketball, soccer baseball, flag football, bench ball and floor hockey.

The playing field wasn’t the only place where athletes competed. Each team of 10 participants raised a minimum of $2000 ($200 per person) through pledges. Thanks to their incredible fundraising efforts we raised $80,000 net in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!
