We are now just over two weeks removed from Wheels in Motion, the awareness and fund-raising event held every second Sunday in June, in support of people with spinal cord injuries.

Locally, the 8th annual event at Centennial Park on June 13th will start at 1pm with registation starting at 12pm.

The wheel, walk, role, kick-off is designed to give those who participate a small insight into Rick Hansen’s Man-in-Motion World Tour a quarter of a century ago.

Local Organizer, Lori Slater….

Also because this is the 25th anniversary of the Man-in-Motion tour the local fund raising goal has been set at $25,000

Northern BC has the highest incidence of spinal cord injuries per capita, in all of North America.
