Over the last couple of weeks, the Reeve Foundation has focused on supporting relief efforts that are directed at the people of Haiti with existing and newly acquired disabilities.
Disabled competitive athletes will take the stage and compete in alpine skiing, cross country skiing, wheelchair curling, ice sledge hockey, and a biathlon (a combination of cross-country skiing and rifle shooting).
Man In Motion Rick Hansen has been named as the community torchbearer when the Olympic Torch Relay completes its Richmond leg on Tuesday, February 9, 2010.
“Rick is both an international hero and a tireless community volunteer,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We’re proud to have him represent Richmond by carrying the torch and lighting the cauldron during our community celebration. It will not only celebrate the imminent opening of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, it will be a fitting tribute to the 25th anniversary of Rick’s incredible Man In Motion World Tour.”
