Assisi welcomes Man in Motion

Canada’s Man in Motion, Rick Hansen, brought his inspirational message to St. Francis of Assisi elementary school on Sept. 15. Hansen, who will soon celebrate the 25th anniversary of embarking on a 35-country, four-continent wheelchair tour to raise money for spinal cord research, was invited by the school community and the Moeller family after Karl Moeller, a Grade 4 student, was paralyzed in a motor vehicle accident. The school has raised $70,000 for a lift-equipped bus and building modifications so Karl can return to class. See next week's B.C. Catholic for the full story and pictures.
