motionball’s Marathon of Sport in support of Special Olympics Canada returns to Toronto in June


Canada’s largest sporting event in support of Special Olympics Canada Foundation is back!

TORONTO, ONTARIO — April 23, 2024: National not-for-profit motionball for Special Olympics announces its 2024 Marathon of Sport Toronto, presented by Scarborough Toyota, will take place on Saturday, June 8, from 9 am to 4 pm at York University Keele Campus.

64 teams each with a Special Olympics star athlete

The annual event sees sixty-four teams, each with a star Special Olympics athlete. The teams compete in a variety of sports, like football, giant pong, ultimate frisbee, benchball, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and can participate in a #NoGoodWay activation, at the York University Keele Campus, a transit-friendly venue.

Fundraising goal $450,000

Teams from around the GTA will fundraise prior to the event with the overall goal of raising $450,000 net for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. The Marathon of Sport not only brings awareness to the Special Olympics movement but also allows people with and without intellectual disabilities to interact, build lifelong friendships, and ultimately create more inclusive communities. The funds raised through this year’s Marathon of Sport will ensure Special Olympics athletes have the resources to stay active and compete in the sports they love on a national and international level. 

York Lions Stadium

This year, attendees will end the day by celebrating at the on-site after-party, taking place at York Lions Stadium, from 4 pm to 8 pm. Participants will listen to live music and enjoy a complimentary drink in the beer garden. 

The 2024 Toronto Marathon of Sport is presented by Scarborough Toyota. To learn more about how to register and participate in motionball’s Marathon of Sport, visit: motionball.com/toronto.
