Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay

French translation follows


Hello,
I am pleased to inform you that I will be a Medal Bearer in the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay.  It is quite an honor to have been selected for this special occasion quite humbling actually if you consider the total team will consist of only 7000 Canadians.


 My portion of the relay will take place on Correction its October 26 at 9:53 AM and not November.


Starting from rue pointe gatineau I will propel my manual chair to the McDonald's on greber boulevard.


Each medal bearer is assigned a number, look for this on the Route Markers for the start of my relay segment.


My number is MB064-012


There is no cost to come and see all I'm looking for are a few familiar faces to help me along as I make my way participating in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Hope to see you there…

Michael


Bonjour,


J’ai le grand plaisir de vous announcer que je participe au 25e anniversaire du Relais de Rick Hansen.  Avoir été choisi porteur de médaille est tout un honneur  d’autant plus que le total des participants se chiffre à 7000 Canadiens.


Ma section du relais consiste à propulser ma chaise manuelle du coin de la rue Pointe Gatineau au restaurant MacDonald du boulevard Gréber.  Le relais aura lieu le 26 Octobre et non novembre à 9 h53 du matin.  Chaque porteur de médaille est assignié un numéro.  Le mien est le MB064-012.   Repérez-moi sur la route du relais et venez m’encourager le long de mon trajet.  C’est une expérience à ne pas manquer.  J’espère d’y voir vos visages familiers puisque pour moi, c’est une chance unique de participer à un tel projet.


Je vous donne rendez-vous…

Thanks Judy,
You can bet that my training will begin tomorrow morning. I haven't used my manual wheelchair in such a long time!
Wish me luck

Oh wow Michael! Way to go! Congratulations! I can't make it to Quebec, but I will be cheering for you on November 26 at 9:53 AM.
Good luck!
Cheers

Mike, I received a FB request which I believe is from you. I have wound down my FB involvement so if I do not accept your generous invitation it has nothing at all to do with you. Other than immediate family, I am just not doing FB anymore. Thank you for thinking of me, and I hope you will understand. Again, I am moved by the request but unable to respond in the affirmative. Down the road, I may decide to activate FB again, but now.
