Our Sponsors



Thank-you to our sponsors!

A project of this scope and scale such as the 25th Anniversary and Rick Hansen Relay could not be possible without the tremendous support from major sponsors and corporations. Our partners share our vision of celebrating everyday Canadians' contributions to their communities with the goal of inspiring the next generation of difference makers.

Presenting Partners:

A partner who has been there from the beginning, McDonald's Restaurants of Canada have had a long-standing relationship with Rick and the Rick Hansen Foundation, dating back to the original Man In Motion World Tour in 1987 - where McDonald's customers raised $1.8 million from coast-to-coast. For the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay, the Relay will pass through or stop at McDonald's restaurants across Canada as it makes its way to Vancouver, BC.
Nike supported the original Man In Motion World Tour as Rick passed through 34 countries with the Nike 'swoosh' proudly adorned on his chest. This will be the case again for the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay, with each participant - and Rick - wearing uniforms provided by Nike as the Relay makes its 12,000 kilometre journey.
