Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay

Chris Wheeler Media ran a multi-camera operation producing engaging web episodes and providing broadcast packages of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay across Canada. We were honoured to join such an excellent team and to capture the inspiring stories of the many in motion participants.

This video was also presented at the Celebration 25, where the 25th Anniversary of the Rick Hansen Man In Motion World Tour concluded with an evening of music and entertainment to honour difference makers from across Canada—each of whom share Rick’s vision of a healthy and inclusive world. The two-hour show was broadcasted on CTV.

More about this relay: Celebrating 7,000 everyday Canadian difference makers from coast to coast, the Rick Hansen Relay completes its inspirational nine-month journey in Vancouver. After travelling 12,000 kilometres through 600 communities, the Relay has helped inspire thousands of Canadians to make a meaningful difference in their communities and to bring about positive change.

“Chris was an amazing member of the team – working tirelessly on the relay and keeping up with the demands of a tough schedule and always on the move. With a reliable/resourceful/get it done attitude.” – Suzanne Reeves Director of Marketing Rick Hansen Foundation from 2010-2012
