Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay

Today I got to take part in the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay.  My school chose me to start off Day 268, Maple Ridge to Coquitlam.

I think that Rick Hansen and everyone who works with the Rick Hansen Foundation is absolutely inspiring.  I am so honoured to have had such an amazing opportunity, and to be a part of such a fantastic school, and community, and country!  I've been faced with many difficult things and I am so thankful for every single person in my life, you have all made such a huge difference and have helped me become the person that I am.  I will always pay it forward and do what I can to make a difference in the lives of others.  I believe that we all have the power to change the world.  And I want to remind everyone that no matter what challenges or obstacles are thrown your way, don't give up.  Don't lose sight of your hopes and dreams, because anything is possible.

Here's some pictures! :)
