Photo gallery: Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay in Revelstoke

The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay arrived in Revelstoke Tuesday afternoon, starting with a sponsor visit in Revelstoke and culminating with Drew Derosier rolling his way into Grizzly Plaza as the day's final medal bearer.

"First thing's first, this thing is heavy," he joked to the crowd of about 200. "I'm honoured to be here. It's the best."

The relay marks the 25th anniversary of Rick Hansen's Man In Motion world tour, when the Canadian hero circled the world in his wheelchair to raise money for spinal injury research.

The relay resumes with a ceremony at Revelstoke Secondary School Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m. before departing for Golden, B.C.
