Marathon of Sport

On September 20, 2015 in Winnipeg

We Did Something Special on the Playing Field!

The 2015 motionball Marathon of Sport Winnipeg welcomed 41 Teams of young professionals to Westwood Collegiate on Sunday September 23rd for a fun-filled day of sport in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

Participants enjoyed a day of athletic competition that saw motionball supporters compete alongside local Special Olympics Manitoba athletes in a variety of sports & activities including soccer, ultimate frisbee, bocce, basketball, benchball, kickball, and football.

The playing field wasn’t the only place where athletes competed. Each team of 10 participants raised a minimum of $1000 ($100 per person) through pledges. Thanks to their incredible fundraising efforts we raised over $85,000 net in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!
