Marathon of Sport Vancouver

On June 10, 2017 in Vancouver

We Did Something Special on the Playing Field!

The 2017 motionball Marathon of Sport Vancouver presented by VEGA was our best yet, welcoming 24 Teams of young professionals to EA Sports for a fun-filled day of athletic competition in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

Participants teamed up with local Special Olympics British Columbia athletes and together, they competed in a variety of sports & activities including basketball, benchball, football, ultimate, soccer, beach volleyball and more!

Thanks to their incredible support, we set a motionball Vancouver record, raising $126,000 net in support of Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

motionball was proud to donate 70% of the funds raised from this event to Special Olympics British Columbia. 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.
