Rick Hansen is a former Canadian Paralympian athlete and a tireless traveller.

An accident put him in a wheelchair at the age of 15, and since then he has not stopped fighting to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.

In 1985 he combined his talents as a marathon athlete with his traveller spirit and he circled the world in his wheelchair. An experience that would break down all kinds of prejudices raising money to bring awareness of the need of a world without barriers.

He currently leads the Rick Hansen Foundation, an association that looks after the well-being of people with disabilities and a more accessible and inclusive society.
