Heat athletes (HAC) give time at Motionball fundraiser

Early on a Saturday morning a group of athletes who found themselves with a rare weekend off from competition found time to volunteer at the Motion Ball Marathon fundraiser.

The event in Kelowna on September 22 was a huge success raising $125,000 at City Park for the 2018 Motionball Marathon of Sport Kelowna all in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

The motionball website describes the Marathon of Sport as a "Fun-filled day of athletic competition where participants team up with local Special Olympics British Columbia athletes and together, they will compete in a variety of sports & activities including soccer, football, ultimate, basketball, benchball and so much more!"
