The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay rolled into City of the Arts on Friday May 18. On this day, Port Moody will have joined more than 600 route communities across Canada in re-creating Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion cross-Canada Tour. And the City of Port Moody and the PoCoMo Youth Services Society are inviting Port Moody residents and friends to celebrate this moment with us. Come and cheer on Brynn Bishop, a Moody Middle School student who is the Medal Bearer for Port Moody.
Our line up of events, started at 8:45am with entertainment by local celebrity Tony Prophet, along with free hot chocolate for everyone, provided by Gallaghers Coffee Bar. Just before 9am the Rick Hansen Relay arrives at Port Moody City Hall, 100 Newport Drive. Hear inspiring words from Mayor Mike Clay, and other Relay guests and be on hand for the presentation to Brynn Bishop, Port Moody’s Medal Bearer. After the Relay leaves, you can stick around to enjoy more entertainment by Tony Prophet.
A large celebration is planned for Thermal Drive as Rick Hansen is joined by several hundred middle school kids to make the climb up the hill once again. In order to accommodate this, Moray Street/Thermal Drive will be closed to all traffic between 10 am and 12 noon. These times are approximate, and may be adjusted to ensure the safety of the participants.
Take a look at the route map to see where the Relay will travel through Port Moody.
