The annual Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion fundraiser took place outside of Eau Claire Market in Calgary on Sunday, June 14, 2009. It raises money to find a cure for spinal injuries, as well as improving accessibility for people with disabilities. People who are able to walk find out what it's like to navigate a race course in a wheelchair. Competitors included politicians and media personalities.
The 2009 Mother's Day Run and Walk was held in Calgary to raise money to fund the purchase of new medical equipment for local hospitals.
After the 5/10K walk/run ended, people gathered at Olympic Plaza, and there was a mascot race. Maybe it's me, but the Dino mascot seems rather nasty.
