It's time to do something special on the virtual playing field, Canada.
Sportsnet and motionball thanks everyone who joined the virtual 2020 Marathon of Sport, a national interactive fitness fundraiser with proceeds supporting the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.
Hosted by five-time Olympic medalist Tessa Virtue, Marathon of Sport featured some of your favourite Canadian sports celebrities challenging you to a variety of sport and fitness activities. There were also special appearances by Sportsnet's Caroline Cameron and Evanka Osmak during this hour-long, interactive virtual event.
With many local fundraising initiatives on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this fundraiser will make an impact in the lives of Special Olympics athletes from across the country. Donations made to the Marathon of Sport will help fund Special Olympics programs and ensure no athlete is left behind.
