motionball GALA

motionball Gala events are a perfect mix of philanthropy and fun. Network with the next generation of young professionals, experience a night of entertainment and celebrate the Special Olympic athletes who make it all worthwhile.

motionball Galas are currently taking place in Toronto, Calgary, and Halifax.


We believe that the next generation of Canadians, today’s students and young professionals, are the future of the Special Olympics movement – with the power to make a meaningful difference for generations to come. The motionball University program was established to provide Canadian students with a new and engaging way to give back, while gaining valuable experience and developing unparalleled leadership skills.

Running today on over 32 university campuses, coast to coast, the motionballU program is engaging more young people in the Special Olympics movement than ever before. To get involved with motionballU, please email
