Living Hero

Even though his best days were 30 years ago, Rick Hansen is a truly inspirational man and in my eyes, a hero. Copying Terry Fox' idea to travel on foot, Rick with his spinal injury started his Man in Motion tour in 1985. He raised $26 Million from the tour alone and has raised over $200 Million for spinal cord research and programs and quality of lives initiative with the Rick Hansen Foundation. Rick's other notable achievements are his performances in the Paralympic Games. He has won 3 golds and 2 silvers in the Games for Canada. He is a truly inspirational man and deserves to be classified as a hero. Below is the site of his foundation.
