Currently in 15 cities and 32 Universities across Canada, with over 700 teams and 12,500 supporters raising funds and awareness for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, Marathon of Sport is our flagship property.

Marathon of Sport is a fun-filled day of athletic competition where young professionals spend a day playing sports with Special Olympics athletes from their communities.


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
