Wheelchair athlete Rick Hansen, whose 1985 "Man in Motion" round-the-world wheelchair tour raised money for spinal cord research, rehabilitation and wheelchair sports, was born at Port Alberni, B.C. Hansen’s charitable work has raised millions of dollars and has brought him around the world. He shared the Lou Marsh Award for Outstanding Canadian Athlete in 1983, and was a final torchbearer at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. He’s just plain awesome.
