Marathon of Sport

On August 29, 2015 in P.E.I

We Did Something Special on the Playing Field!

The inaugural motionball Marathon of Sport PEI presented by the Gray Group welcomed 12 Teams of young professionals to the University of PEI on Saturday August 29th 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 PEI athletes in a variety of sports & activities including soccer, flag football, bench ball, ultimate, soccer baseball, and an obstacle course!

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 crushed our fundraising goal, raising $24,000 net in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!
