The e-mail I received today , after coming home from volunteering at the local SPCA ...great news .I used similar story used when carrying the Olympic Torch 2010..." diabetes made me do it" :
A while ago, you had applied to our online contest to be a Medal-Bearer in The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay and you’ve been selected! We are wondering if you would still like to be a Medal Bearer! Please email or call us before Friday, March 16, 2012 to let us know if you can be a part of the relay, otherwise unfortunately this relay spot will be offered to someone else.
Participating Community: Salmon Arm, BC
Date: April 4, 2012
You will be asked to carry the Rick Hansen medal for a distance of approximately 250m. Your friends and family may walk or wheel beside you as you complete your segment, as long as they can keep up with you!
Once you are in touch with us, we will let you know more about what to expect on your special day.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to having you in the relay!
All the best,
