On June 10th, Sara Pedlow will participate in the 2017 Motionball Marathon of Sport Vancouver.
At the Marathon of Sport, young professionals will be teamed up with local Special Olympics British Columbia athletes and together, will compete in a variety of sports and activities including basketball, benchball, football, ultimate, soccer, beach volleyball and more.
Marathon of Sport is organized by Motionball, a not-for-profit organization that builds awareness and raises funds for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Its mandate is to introduce the next generation of volunteers and donors to the Special Olympics through integrated social and sporting events. Through these events and since its inception in 2002, Motionball has donated over $7.5 million to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.
Update: This year, participants set a Motionball Vancouver record, raising $126,000. Sara’s team, Fam and Friends, was named as top fundraiser in the Vancouver event, raising just over $12,000.
