The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay


The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay
Beginning on August 24, 2011 in Cape Spear, Newfoundland and Labrador – the easternmost point in North America and approximately 15 kilometres south-east of St. John’s – the 25th Anniversary Relay will retrace the Canadian segment of the original Tour, but this time one man in motion will be represented and celebrated by many in motion; engaging 7,000 participants from across Canada who have made their own difference in the lives of others.

Medal-Bearers
Focusing on engaging Canadians to take up the challenge and become catalysts for positive change, the Relay will feature Medal-Bearers who will run, walk, wheel or bike and complete their segments through a variety of forms of movement for all abilities.

The Rick Hansen Medal
In every province, Relay Medal-Bearers will pass along the singular Rick Hansen Medal – produced by the Royal Canadian Mint – as the Relay makes its way across the country. While Rick will be present at a number of cities and stops along the 25th Anniversary Relay, it will be these 7,000 Medal-Bearers who will complete this cross-Canada tour.
