Join us in supporting Special Olympics Canada Foundation

motionball's Marathon of Sport brings athletes of all abilities together on the playing field. 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.

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 continue the sport programs they love.


We need your help to reach our 2024 goal of raising $2 million net
for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

Goal of $2,000,000 35%

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 created some incredible mixes so our athletes can jam out while they train for their sports programs! 

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!
