Get inspired by the Man in Motion

UToday HomeFebruary 27, 2012

Rick Hansen’s 25th Anniversary Relay is a cross-Canada journey that retraces the original Canadian-leg of the Man in Motion World Tour. The relay engages communities and participants across Canada to encourage all of us to dream big, recognize difference-makers, create lasting and sustainable legacies and change the world.

The Olympic Oval has sponsored the Rick Hansen Relay’s Calgary leg and is hosting the event today. Come watch University of Calgary student and Canadian Para-Nordic Ski Team member Mark Arendz, and long-track speed-skating champion and former student Christine Nesbitt proudly represent the university as medal bearers.

Doors to the Oval will open at 11 a.m. and the relay will kick-off at 11:30 a.m.
