motionball: Five Years of Fun for a Great Cause

Last weekend marked the 5th year of 24-7 Intouch’s involvement and sponsorship of motionball Marathon of Sport in support of the Special Olympics Manitoba and the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

Magic on the Playing Field

motionball is a fun-filled day of athletic competition, where participants team up with local Special Olympics athletes. Together, they compete in sports & activities including soccer, football, ultimate frisbee, basketball, benchball and so much more. The day is all about team engagement, community building and supporting an important cause. It’s also an incredibly rewarding day of fun!

This year’s Winnipeg event took place on September 23rd at the University of Manitoba with 52 teams in participation.

The playing field isn’t the only place where there’s competition. This year, 24-7 Intouch had four teams participate and raised a record total of pledge donations.
