motionball Marathon of Sport Corporate Challenge
What is the Corporate Challenge?
This new initiative allows you and your colleagues to stay active at the office or at home in support of Special Olympics athletes across Canada. Just choose your activity goal & time frame, then challenge your team to log physical activity leading up the virtual event on our free platform. Your team will be paired with a local Special Olympics athlete who will be helping you reach your goal, and providing inspiration.
On September 26th, all of your employees and their families can tune in to the Marathon of Sport broadcast – a 1 hour sport and fitness challenge hosted by Olympic Gold medalist Tessa Virtue and her sport celebrity friends. Your team can follow along at home, or in person with colleagues, friends, or family.
How does the Corporate Challenge work?
motionball will work with you to determine your company’s activity goal, based on how many employees you would like to engage, how long you would like them to log activity for, etc. All activity will be logged on motionball’s easy to use online platform. The goal for activity can also be set up as a factor of the donation the company is making. For example: For every minute of activity logged by YOUR COMPANY employees from X date to X date, YOUR COMPANY donates $X to motionball, up to a maximum of your choosing.
Is there a fee to participate?
There is no minimum fee to participate, and you can determine how much you would like to contribute. However, if your company would like to be recognized as an event sponsor, you can choose from a variety of sponsorship levels. All sponsors will receive logo recognition, a team starter kit, and additional benefits based on your level of sponsorship.
Do we need to fundraise?
Fundraising is completely optional. All registered participants will be provided with a personal donation link and fundraising tools automatically. All those who choose to fundraise will be eligible to earn incentives, including Under Armour gear and more.
Do we need to complete the Corporate Challenge?
The Corporate Challenge is an optional initiative to drive employee engagement amongst your staff in the weeks/months leading up to the event on September 26th. If you would like your company and employees to participate in Virtual Marathon of Sport on September 26th but do not have the capacity to complete the Corporate Challenge initiative -that is OK! You are still welcome to register as a Corporate Team
Is there a minimum number of participants required?
No! Companies can engage as many employees as they choose! This is a great way to get even MORE people involved with motionball, with no barriers to participate.
Will my team be assigned a Special Olympics athlete?
Yes! Special Olympics athletes assigned to corporate teams will participate in logging activity and help the team reach their goal. motionball will provide a photo and bio of your athlete(s), which will be on your team’s online dashboard. We encourage all of our corporate teams to connect with athletes virtually in advance and day of the event by email or video conference.
Can we play against another team or company?
Yes! We encourage friendly competition between companies and their clients, competitors, or even internally between local offices!
