Rick Hansen Relay wraps up

25th Anniversary of when Rick Hansen finished his world tour ended on May 22nd, almost 25 years to the day as well I got to participate in the relay, as I wheeled beside Rick when he came through Edmonton, it would of been March 12 or 13th, 1987.
On May 20th, I got to participate in the 25th Anniversary Relay, wheeling a segment in White Rock.

Was able to go to the Concert for Heroes on the 22nd which was incredible.  So much fun.
BTW the concert will be on TV:

1 hour show I believe. 

CTV joins the Rick Hansen Foundation in honouring today’s “Difference Makers” during the exclusive broadcast premiere of "RICK HANSEN: A CONCERT FOR HEROES", airing Sunday, June 24 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and CTV Mobile.

Encore broadcasts of "RICK HANSEN: A CONCERT FOR HEROES" air Wednesday, June 27 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV Two; Saturday, June 30 at 4 p.m. ET on CTV; and Saturday, July 7 at 12 p.m. ET on CTV Two and at 7 p.m. on Bravo.

Hope everyone gets to check out the show, live it was just fantastic, so many incredible artists and inspirational people/stories.

Since that day 25 years ago I have become a friend of Rick, played basketball with him and consider him more than just an inspiration and incredible hero...he is of course the Ultimate Difference Maker!!!

WTG Rick and congrats again on the tour.  Thanks for everything you have done to help SCI (Spinal Cord Injury) research and helping to improve the daily lives of people with SCI.

You and your team deserve the world, you have changed and affected the world so much!!!
