Who’s Your Hero Bike Tour kicks off at Gasworks Sept. 14

 

The “Who’s Your Hero Tour” kicks off Sept. 14 at 9 a.m. PDT in Gas Works Park, 2101 N Northlake Way, Seattle, WA. The tour is being led by Chris Waddell, a 13-time Paralympic Medalist and first paraplegic to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. More information about Chris can be found at one-revolution.org/index.php/about/about-chris/.

Over the course of about a month, the tour will make stops in large and small communities near Portland, Napa, San Francisco, and San Diego. Chris will take One Revolution’s Nametags™ program into local schools, veterans’ centers, and other venues to talk about making the most out of life. During those stops, Chris will highlight people who’ve made choices to stand up for what they believe in and have demonstrated strength in the face of struggle. There is a limited number of presentation dates still available on the West Coast stops. To nominate a hero or schedule a Nametags presentation, send stories and requests toinfo@one-revolution.org.

The Nametags™ Education Program is designed for students in third grade and above. Children learn that they have the power to make choices about how they are perceived – the “nametags” they wear. The overriding message is that in the face of adversity, they can choose resilience. For more information, visit www.one-revolution.org/nametags.php.
