Student-Led Motionball Event Raises $2K for Special Olympics

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the first ever Motionball Marathon of Sport at the Axworthy Health & RecPlex on Sunday, September 17th.  The action-packed day was organized by UWinnipeg kin students Madeline Ferguson and Shaelyn Pepper who thanked their fellow students for "Bringing their spirits and helping raise funds and awareness for our local Special Olympics community!"  Motionball is a Special Olympics event that pits corporate teams against one another in a fun day of sport competition.  Each team consists of 8-10 players and a Special O athlete.
Motionball was extended to our campus community and the enthusiastic student organizers helped raise $2K for the charity. With this success, the students plan on a second Motionball at UWinnipeg next October, 2018. Department of Kinesiology & Applied Health instructor, Andrea Bedard, successfully dove-tailed this event into a practicum for her Adapted Physical Activity students. Well done all!
