Motionball is a not-for-profit organization that builds awareness and raises funds for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. This year we gathered at Flames Central for the black & white Gala where the focus of the evening was one powerful word: Never.

The concept of NEVER:

Between triumph and challenge lies a single word Never
It is the moment when we experience giving up, or giving it our all.
It is the powerful word that gets in the way, or gets us on track.

"Never being able" becomes "Never thinking twice."
"Never being the best" becomes "Never settling for second".
"Never getting there" become "Never quitting".

Athletes everyday are faced with the word "Never". From others, and from themselves.
Some will choose to give up and succumb to the challenge. The others, will surpass and experience the triumph.
You can't have one without the other, and "Never" is the word where they collide.

Our athletes Mark Evans, Katie Saunders, Sarah McCarthy, Bill Hurley, Andrew Turnbull, Allie Price, Jennifer Riddell and Wade Watson
