#NOGOODWAY

motionball is working to promote positivity and inclusion, demonstrating that there is #NoGoodWay to use the “r-word” (retard). This word is hurtful, outdated, and brings back memories of being bullied and excluded for individuals with intellectual disabilities.  

As motionballers, we are proud ambassadors of the #NoGoodWay campaign. Learn more and take the pledge at motionball.com/nogoodway.

motionball is proud to donate 70% of the funds raised from this event to Special Olympics Ontario. 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 50+ annual events in 27 cities across Canada. motionball is proud to have donated $14M to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation since our inception in 2002.

YOUR IMPACT

Join us in supporting Special Olympics Canada Foundation

While COVID-19 has impacted us all, Special Olympics athletes are feeling the effects of this global pandemic more than most. Sport programs are on hold, competitions have been postponed, and many athletes remain indoors missing their social connections. Now more than ever, the role of motionball events in these athlete’s lives is incredibly important. As one of Special Olympics’ largest funding partners in Canada, motionball has donated over $14M to date. motionball supporters are dedicated to ensuring that every local club and program can return stronger than before, and that no Special Olympics athlete is left behind.

DJ DXB's motionball mixes

Long time motionball supporter & Marathon of Sport Toronto DJ, DJ DxB, knows just how much our Special Olympics athletes love to dance – so he’s been bringing the positive vibes and creating some incredible mixes weekly so our athletes can jam out in the comfort of their own home! 

We recommend that you start off your day by jamming out to these awesome tunes! 

Plus – a number of the songs featured on these playlists were chosen by Special Olympics Ontario athletes, so you’re sure to have a blast!

WHO WE ARE

motionball is a national non-profit organization that empowers young Canadians to be leaders in their communities, raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics through inclusive social and sporting events. At motionball Saint John, we’re working to ensure that individuals with intellectual disabilities living in Saint John are included, supported, and celebrated. 

motionball events put the fun back into giving, in Saint John and across Canada. 

This year in particular, Special Olympics athletes need us more than ever as many remain isolated and alone, at a greater risk of contracting COVID-19 than the general population. Join us in raising funds and awareness for the cause so that Special Olympics sport programs can return with strength, and that no athlete is left behind. 

WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

While fundraising is one of our goals, Marathon of Sport is about so much more. This day not only brings awareness to the Special Olympics movement, but allows people with and without intellectual disabilities to interact, build lifelong friendships, and ultimately create more inclusive communities.

By entering a Team, you will also help to ensure our friends at Special Olympics New Brunswick have the resources they need to stay active at home and that when the time comes later this year, they can safely return to the sport programs they love.

#NOGOODWAY

motionball is working to promote positivity and inclusion, demonstrating that there is #NoGoodWay to use the “r-word” (retard). This word is hurtful, outdated, and brings back memories of being bullied and excluded for individuals with intellectual disabilities.  

As motionballers, we are proud ambassadors of the #NoGoodWay campaign. Learn more and take the pledge at motionball.com/nogoodway.

PAST EVENTS

Marathon of Sport Saint John

motionball is proud to donate 70% of the funds raised from motionball Saint John events to Special Olympics New Brunswick. 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 50+ annual events in 27 cities across Canada. motionball is proud to have donated $14M to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation since our inception in 2002.
