Anything Is Possible: Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion World Tour

Between March 21, 1985, and May 22, 1987, Rick and wheeled the equivalent of two marathons every day across 34 countries on 4 continents during his Man In Motion World Tour. The pace of the 40,598-kilometre (24,902-mile) Tour was grueling. Rick himself averaged 30,000 arm strokes and 8 hours of wheeling a day, and spent 792 days on the road.

Rick and his team raised $26 million for spinal cord injuries (SCI) research; moreover, they inspired people around the world to believe in their own potential regardless of circumstance. The Tour’s legacy has been far-reaching, heightening awareness and informing new policies, codes, and legislation aimed at removing barriers for people with disabilities.

The year 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the completion of the Man In Motion World Tour. Celebrations include the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay, which retraces the Canadian route of Rick’s original Tour and the Interdependence 2012 Conference for global best practices and collaboration in SCI research.

The coin design was personally selected and approved by Rick Hansen himself, and an exceptional way to commemorate an event that has changed the face of physical disability in Canada and around the world and brought hope to millions through enhanced research, collaboration, legislation, and public discourse.
