The Rick Hansen Relay will be making its way through Delta this weekend.
In the last week of a nine-month, cross-Canada journey, the relay will be making several local stops this Sunday morning.
On Aug. 24, 2011, the relay began in Cape Spear, Newfoundland and Labrador. It was 25 years to the day that Hansen began his epic Man in Motion wheelchair world tour in 1986.
The anniversary relay aims to retrace the Canadian segment of that original tour, however, this time around the Man in Motion has been replaced and celebrated by many in motion.
The current tour has engaged 7,000 participants from across Canada who have made their own difference in the lives of others.
In every province, relay medal bearers have been running, walking, wheeling and biking across the country while they pass along the Rick Hansen Medal, which was produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.
The relay will make its way through more than 600 communities on its 12,000kilometre journey before concluding in Vancouver on May 22.
Delta's municipal hall will act as a relay celebration site, hosting a number of free activities on Sunday morning. The relay medal bearer is scheduled to arrive at the hall at 10 a.m., with activities, including a pancake breakfast and family entertainment, running from 9 to 11: 30 a.m.
