Get In Motion at UBC

Event to raise funds for spinal cord research.

Get in Motion at UBC is the theme of a community event to be held June 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Koerner Plaza, in support of the national Rick Hansen Man In Motion Campaign that celebrates the 15th anniversary of Hansen's Man In Motion World Tour.

It is one of a series of events taking place across Canada to raise awareness and funds for spinal cord research.

The event features a pledged walk, wheel or ride; a demonstration of wheelchair basketball; a wheelchair relay race; a dunk tank and display of research into spinal cord injury.

"With the support of Canadians in communities across the country, we will find a cure for spinal cord injury. Anything is possible," says Hansen, who is president and CEO of the Rick Hansen Institute & Foundation.

Registration to participate in the event is $20. Pledge forms are available on the Web site at http://madmaxmultimedia.com/rhi/downloads.html. All funds raised will go to spinal cord research.

Event sponsors include the Alma Mater Society, the Office of the President, Food Services and other UBC departments.
