 | March 28, 2012

On Friday, March 30, Rick Hansen’s Anniversary Relay will be making a stop in Sun Peaks, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the historic Man in Motion World Tour. The public is invited to come out to the Village Day Lodge to hear an inspiring message from the man in motion himself, and learn more about adaptive ski programs in Sun Peaks.

“We’ve got Rick Hansen making comments not only on the 25th anniversary of the relay, but also on accessibility for everybody,” says Christopher Nicolson, president of Tourism Sun Peaks.

The event kicks off at 9 a.m. in front of the Village Day Lodge. Hansen is scheduled to speak at 11 a.m. and will afterward join Sun Peaks’ Director of Skiing, Nancy Greene for a few turns on the mountain.
