Join us in supporting Special Olympics Canada Foundation

motionball’s goal is to raise the important funds needed in order to ensure that later this year, all Special Olympics programs can return stronger than ever, to ensure that no athlete is left behind.

For many athletes, Special Olympics is not just about sport, or staying healthy, but also about providing a social network, a sense of belonging and a valuable source of stability – all essential to mental and physical health.

By making a donation to motionball or entering a Team to participate, you're helping to ensure that our friends at Special Olympics have the resources they need to stay active at home and that when the time comes, they can safely return to the sport programs they love.

motionball remains committed to the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and Special Olympics athletes. motionball will ensure any in-person elements of our 2021 events, align with local public health guidelines and the Special Olympics Canada return-to play-guidelines.


We need your help to reach our goal of raising $1 million for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

The more your raise, the more you get! Check out these great fundraising incentives.

There are so many unique ways to raise money. Sometimes all you have to do is ask! But if you need some inspiration, here are some ideas to get you started!

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!
