According to a Business Wire press release, MLG Blockchain, an expert blockchain consultant and development firm has launched a crypto fundraising initiative to support and raise awareness in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.
MLG aims to raise $5000 in cryptocurrency donations or regular Canadian dollar donations for both the 2018 motionball Marathon of Sport Toronto and the #NoGoodWay campaign.
“Toronto motionball Marathon of Sport is proud to have MLG Blockchain Consulting join us for this year’s event,” said Braeden Hunt, Co-Event Director Toronto motionball Marathon of Sport. “The opportunity to support donations through cryptocurrency is a new fundraising initiative for motionball and the Special Olympics movement, and we are excited to see the results.”
Donors will be able to support this initiative until May 26, the date on which the motionball Marathon of Sport (MMS) will take place. The MMS is an all-day sports fundraiser for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. MLG Blockchain has announced it will send a delegation of 10 members to participate in the event, at the Hangar in Downsview Park, Toronto. On this day, 84 teams of motionball supporters, each raising a minimum of $3,000 in pledges and each joined by a Special Olympics athlete, will take to the field for a day of non-stop sports.
“It is refreshing to see such positive social initiatives taking place in Canada. We are very proud to support Special Olympics athletes with the help of the Blockchain community,” commented Michael Gord, CEO at MLG Blockchain.
In addition to this friendly competition, 1,000 Marathon of Sport participants will take a powerful pledge in support of 120 Special Olympics athletes to end the use of the R-word in everyday conversation and take an inspirational stand against anti bullying.
