The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay will arrive in Swift Current on Feb. 13, 2012.  One of the most exciting benefits of hosting an End of Day Celebration for the Relay is the opportunity for our community to recommend the Final Community Participant who will carry the Rick Hansen Medal into our celebration.

The Final Community Participants will be shining examples of ordinary people with extraordinary stories of determination, excellence and teamwork – people who make a difference in the community.
