Who’s Your Hero Tour – Successfully Underway!0 Heroes, Who's Your Hero Tour
Loaded to the ceiling with a hand cycle, presentation materials and luggage, the One Revolution tour support vehicle traveled from Utah to Washington last week to meet Chris Waddell and gear up for the journey down the west coast. We drove into Seattle just hours after Chris was interviewed live on KING 5, and were delighted by the number of thumbs up we got from passers by.
A Nametags TM presentation took place at Seattle Country Day School on Friday as well, which officially began the student outreach component of the Tour. In addition to searching for local hero stories, Chris will have the opportunity to share our message of resilience with thousands of children over the next month.
Seattle was so welcoming! Friday evening, One Revolution Chairman Bob More, hosted a dinner party for a collection of friends, associations and supporters of One Revolution. It is exhilarating to see how our message touches people, the stories of resilience that come to mind all around us, and the willingness of others to help support our mission.
The Who’s Your Hero Tour was successfully launched at Gasworks Park in Seattle on Saturday morning, September 14th. A group gathered in support to help cheer us on, including guest riders from Outdoors for All Foundation. After a quick television interview, Chris Waddell and the One Revolution cycling team broke through a paper banner to begin the 1,500-mile ride.
School presentations, visits to VA Centers and screenings of the 1 Revolution documentary will fill out Chris’s schedule each day. We are excited to share the stories that will come to light of local heroes with stories of resilience, integrity and community. Stories will be shared on our Hero Wall and highlighted along the Tour. It is our hope that we can compile a collection of stories for a documentary in the future to empower others to live fully.
We will share photos and updates along the way. Follow us on Facebook: One Revolution! Who’s your hero? Please share you stories with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support of our mission to turn perceptions of disability upside down!
