Rick Hansen's Man In Motion World Tour
30 Years Later : A Celelebration of Courage, Strength and the Power of CommunityBook - 2017
"On March 21, 1985, world-class wheelchair marathoner and multiple Paralympic medalist Rick Hansen set out from Vancouver, B.C., on his Man In Motion World Tour. The twenty-six-month trek took him and a small but determined crew almost 25,000 miles through thirty-four countries on four continents before crossing Canada. In the process, they raised $26 million for spinal cord research and for initiatives to improve the quality of life and accessibility for people with disabilities. Thirty years after the journey ended, Rick Hansen's Man In Motion World Tour celebrates that ground-breaking accomplishment and, with a Foreword from Rick himself, highlights the legacy of the Man In Motion World Tour and the amazing progress it has spurred up to the present day. Illustrated with 75 exclusive photographs from the Rick Hansen Foundation archives, it is a universal story of courage and adversity, human strength and personal suffering, and, above all, the power of community to effect lasting social change."-- Provided by publisher.
