Changemakers: Rick Hansen

Changemakers: Rick Hansen: "But that wasn't enough. Not even close. For when it comes to dreams, Hansen dreams big. Determined to make the world accessible and inclusive for all, on March 21, 1985, he embarked on what would soon become a life-affirming, internationally recognized event, the Man In Motion Tour. Rolling through 34 countries, covering more than 40,000 km, Hansen raised $26 million for spinal cord injury (SCI) research and quality of life programs and singlehandedly gave people with disabilities reason to believe they could live their lives to the fullest."
