UBC Reports | Vol. 49 | No. 6 | Jun.
5, 2003

Skates, bikes, and blades will be out in force as UBC staff,
faculty and students and the local community get in motion
to raise awareness and funds for spinal cord care and research.

The Rick Hansen Wheels In Motion event will be held Saturday,
June 14, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at SUB Plaza, one of more than
150 events taking place across Canada.

Members of the campus community are encouraged to form teams
to wheel — on bicycles, wheelchairs, inline skates and scooters
— walk or jog around a .6km or 2.5km course. Pledges from
the event will be directed toward research and to improving
the quality of life for people with spinal cord injury.

Teams can register or pledge forms can be obtained by contacting
Gerry Latham at latham@safety.ubc.ca.
