Another year of success - Big congratulation to the 6th annual motionball Gala, an event that fund-raise money for the motionball charity organization, supporting Canada Special Olympics and athletes. This year’s theme “SHINE”, symbolizes the spotlight on success which encouraged guests to wear something shiny to celebrate the bravery, hard work and achievement of our Canadian Special Olympic athletes. ET Canada’s charismatic Rick Campanelli returned as the Gala’s host. Joining also were the founder of the motionball charity Paul Etherington from Toronto, and Calgary motionball Gala director Paul Horton

The sold out SHINE gala held at Flames Central attracted more than 1,000 young professional from Calgary, raising money for the motionball charity. Through the city’s continue support, the organization was able to help more Canadians living with an intellectual disability sign up and register for the programs offered by each Special Olympics Provincial chapter. The evening also consisted of music and dance performances, as well as an interactive LED-lit artistic costumes.

Whatever the current economic downturn may be, it was great to see Calgarians coming out to support a national charity and event such as the motionball – And it doesn’t end here, the next motionball event that will happen in the city is the Marathon Of Sport on May 30th 2015 – “Recruit your family, friends and colleagues to join you on the field for a fun day of athletic competition that sees motionball supporters compete alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports & activities including basketball, soccer baseball, flag football and floor hockey.” – Find out more on Marathon Of Sport HERE.
