Alex Nilsson was the first Creston medal bearer on day 239 of the Rick Hansen Relay.

The Rick Hansen Relay, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion world tour, arrived in Creston on Wednesday afternoon, on the 239th day of the 12,000-kilometre cross-country event.

Alex Nilsson, Todd Francoeur, Rhonda Oswald, Lisa Primrose, Ross Beddoes, Joanne Beddoes and Harry Haberstock carried the Rick Hansen Medal from the welcome to Creston sign to the end-of-day celebration at the Creston and District Community Complex. There, a small audience watched as the medal was taken from Haberstock, then joined in as the medal bearers and relay staff danced to Katy Perry’s Firework.
