Motion­ball is a not for prof­it orga­ni­za­tion that empow­ers young Cana­di­ans to be lead­ers in their com­mu­ni­ties. While rais­ing funds and aware­ness for Spe­cial Olympics Cana­da so that indi­vid­u­als with intel­lec­tu­al dis­abil­i­ties can lead hap­pi­er, health­i­er lives.

Motion­ball now proud­ly hosts over 40 annu­al events in 20 Cana­di­an cities. Through these events and as a result of the many indi­vid­u­als, part­ners and orga­ni­za­tions that have sup­port­ed the move­ment, Motion­ball has donat­ed over $11,000,000 net since its incep­tion in 2002 includ­ing $1.5M to Spe­cial Olympics annually.

Motion­ball is locat­ed in 20 cities and 16 uni­ver­si­ty cam­pus’ across Cana­da and annu­al­ly, Motion­ball puts on their Marathon of Sport — a fun-filled day of ath­let­ic com­pe­ti­tion where young pro­fes­sion­als spend a day play­ing sports with Spe­cial Olympics ath­letes from their communities.

This upcom­ing Jan­u­ary 12. 2020 at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Man­i­to­ba’s Max Bell Cen­tre, Motion­ball will be host­ing our annu­al Marathon of Sport.

All of Motionball’s pro­ceeds go direct­ly to the Spe­cial Olympics Cana­da Foun­da­tion. 70% of the funds raised with­in each Province are then sent to the affil­i­at­ed Spe­cial Olympics Provin­cial Chap­ter. 25% of funds raised from each event stay with the Spe­cial Olympics Cana­da Foun­da­tion and the remain­ing 5% is direct­ed to the #NoGood­Way Cam­paign which aims to end the use of the R‑word (retard) in every­day conversation.
