March 21, 2012
submit to reddit

This year marks 25 years since Rick Hansen accomplished his 'Man In Motion Tour' and to honour his legacy we celebrate the impact and change that he's had across Canada. On March 21, 1985, Rick embarked on his world tour from Oakridge Mall in Vancouver that led him across 34 countries and four continents in 36-months, before returning home to Vancouver in May 1987.

He visited the show earlier this season and shared his defining moment.
