‘Wheels in Motion’ money to buy signage

Published: January 26, 2007

Some of the money raised at last year’s Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion event last year in Whistler will be used to enhance signage for those with disabilities in Whistler, Rick Hansen Man in Motion Foundation officials said this week.

Each June, thousands of people wheel, walk or run to raise money at Wheels in Motion events that aim to improve the quality of life of people with spinal cord injury, and for research leading to a cure.

Last year, Tony Jovanovic led a team of volunteers in the community to help raise $2,947 at the Whistler event. Some of the money will go toward the purchase of signage indicating the location of ramps, elevators and accessible washrooms in public buildings in Whistler Village.
