SAINT MARY'S UNIVERSITY

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. At Saint Mary’s University, we’re working to ensure that individuals with intellectual disabilities living in Nova Scotia are included, supported, and celebrated. We create relevant, meaningful experiences for university students to give back to their community, while building relationships with local Special Olympics athletes. 

motionball events at SMU have raised more than $25,000 for Special Olympics. 

This year in particular, Special Olympics athletes need us more than ever as many remain isolated and alone, at a greater risk of contracting COVID-19 than the general population. Join us in raising funds and awareness for the cause so that Special Olympics sport programs can return with strength, and that no athlete is left behind. 

We are a committee of passionate student leaders determined to make an unprecedented impact, in an unprecedented year. 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT SMU

#NOGOODWAY

motionball is working to promote positivity and inclusion, demonstrating that there is #NoGoodWay to use the “r-word” (retard). This word is hurtful, outdated, and brings back memories of being bullied and excluded for individuals with intellectual disabilities. 

As motionballers, we are proud ambassadors of the #NoGoodWay campaign. Learn more and take the pledge at motionball.com/nogoodway
