According to the Rick Hansen Foundation, Rick Hansen finished his Man In Motion World Tour 25 years ago by wheeling across Canada from Cape Spear, NL to Vancouver, B.C. This year 7,000 people will follow in his tracks to continue the journey of making positive changes in the lives of others.

The Rick Hansen relay is coming to Golden in April, 2012. On behalf of the Rick Hansen Foundation the Town of Golden is encouraging residents to enter to represent our community as a Rick Hansen Relay Medal Bearer as part of the Rick Hansen Many in Motion 25th Anniversay Tour.

The deadline to enter is December 28. For more information and details about this exciting opportunity visit www.rickhansenrelay.com.
