ABOUT US

motionball is a national non-profit organization that empowers young Canadians to be leaders in their communities, raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics through inclusive social and sporting events. 

The motionball University program was established to give Canadian university students the opportunity to create meaningful, relevant ways to support Special Olympics through their own on-campus initiatives and events. 

motionball events are putting the fun back into giving, one campus at a time.

 

All motionballU events are purposeful, fun, and inclusive – bringing together university students and individuals from the community with intellectual disabilities who participate in Special Olympics programs. 

Students are able to give back to a great cause while building meaningful relationships with the very individuals who are benefiting from their support: local Special Olympics athletes. 

motionball now donates over $2 million to Special Olympics Canada Foundation annually, with a significant amount of this funding being generated by passionate university students.

2020 / 2021

IN AN UNPRECEDENTED YEAR, HELP US MAKE AN UNPRECEDENTED IMPACT.

The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 has affected us all. 

For university students it’s meant online courses, cancellation of varsity sports, postponement of social gatherings and important events, virtual hangouts with friends, and new living situations for many. 

For the Special Olympics athletes motionball proudly supports, it’s meant suspension of sport programs, cancellation of competitions, and isolation away from the rest of society as individuals with intellectual disabilities are at a much greater risk of contracting illness than the general population. 

Special Olympics programs funding to ensure sports can return safely and with strength. Athletes need social connections and human interaction now more than ever while they wait inside for the world to reopen to them. 

In this modified, strange, challenging academic year, our motionball leaders aren’t stepping down. 

Instead – they’re stepping up, to ensure that Special Olympics programs have the support they need, and that no athlete is left behind.
