Motionball Toronto Gala was presented by AIR MILES on September 29th at the Liberty Grand! With your support, they were able to raise over $275,000 net locally.
Hosted by Devo Brown, their 20th Anniversary Celebration was be a night of great fun..
This sold-out event welcomed over 2000 guests and celebrity Special Olympics athletes each year for an incredible night of networking, fun, philanthropy, and entertainment.
This event not only brought awareness to the Special Olympics movement, but creates a safe and inclusive environment where people with and without intellectual disabilities can interact, build lifelong friendships, and ultimately create more inclusive communities.
motionball is proud to donate 70% of the funds raised from motionball Toronto events to Special Olympics Ontario. This funding is directed to support programs for local athletes in the community. 25% is directed to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, whose mission is to ensure the long-term financial integrity of the Special Olympics movement in Canada and to fund long term athlete and volunteer growth. The remaining 5% will help grow the #NoGoodWay Campaign aiming to end the use of the R-word (retard) in everyday conversation. We’re encouraging Canadians to make the choice to eliminate the R-word from their vocabulary and empower them to take #NoGoodWay to their circles of influence.
