It began over a month ago on the furthest most edge of Newfoundland and will end this May on the West Coast. The relay marks the 25th Anniversary of Rick Hansen's Man in Motion trip through 34 countries to raise money for spinal cord research. In this relay identified Difference makers from communities across the country will carry the 25th Anniversary Medal pictured below.

Edited to mention that Rick Hansen is actually going to be in Uptown Saint John this morning. He is unable to be in every community along the way. What a special leg of the relay!
