To celebrate and honour his Man in Motion World Tour’s the quarter-century milestone, Rick Hansen began the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay yesterday in Newfoundland. Joining him are 7,000 participants from across Canada, chosen for the difference they’ve made in their own communities and the lives of others, who will walk, wheel or run in Hansen’s nine-month, 12,000 km relay that follows the same route of his original tour.

The relay will pass through over 600 communities across Canada and will span 273 days — to see a map of the route and dates for when they will be passing through or to learn how you can get involved, visit www.rickhansenrelay.com.
