EAV HOSTS MARATHON OF SPORT

This all-day event raised over $80k for the Special Olympics organization. EAV has been a huge supporter and community partner of Special Olympics Marathon of Sport for the past nine years and to date has raised over $350k in fundraising efforts!

Marathon of Sport is an all-day event in which Special Olympic athletes, ranging in age from eleven to thirty, take part in various sports competitions. Each athlete is sponsored by a corporate team from the surrounding Lower Mainland, and is paired with a volunteer on the team to compete in various events. These events include bocce, beach volleyball, handball, ultimate Frisbee, soccer, bench ball, and basketball.

This year, approximately 25 Lower Mainland companies took part, consisting of 202 corporate athletes, 37 Special Olympic athletes, and 30 EA volunteers. To date, over 202 corporate teams from BC have taken part and helped raise money and awareness for Special Olympics BC Foundation and people living with developmental disabilities.

We are very proud to partner with such an amazing foundation and look forward to hosting our 10th anniversary next June!
