Rick Hansen

Man in Motion & Spinal Cord Research Advocate

Rick Hansen Biography

Internationally revered and respected Rick Hansen showed the world that there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome.

Rick Hansen's Man in Motion World Tour captured the hearts and minds of millions of people everywhere. Faced with every obstacle from blinding snowstorms to endless mountain ranges and uncompassionate political borders, Rick gave his all, and emerged triumphant.

Rick Hansen inspires his audiences to challenge themselves and their organizations in their search to find the courage and commitment to be the best that they can be.

He believes that the consistent application of fundamental principles enables people to manage change effectively and thereby achieve their goals.

Upon completion of the Man In Motion World Tour, Rick realized that his work had just begun. In 1988, he established the Rick Hansen Foundation and today, as President and CEO, remains committed to making communities more accessible and inclusive for people with a spinal cord injury (SCI), and accelerating the search for a cure. Through Rick's leadership, the foundation has generated more than $200 million for spinal cord injury related programs and initiatives.

Understanding the significance of the support and mentorship he has received throughout his life, Rick is committed to working with young people to support the development of social responsibility and life skills. He encourages them to be the best that they can be and to believe that anything is possible if they have the courage to try.

Rick has received the Companion Order of Canada, and the Order of British Columbia; initiated National Access Awareness Week in Canada, was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame, is honorary chair for a number of provincial and national advisory councils on disabilities, and holds twelve honorary degrees from Canadian universities.
