The Rick Hansen Relay visited Princeton yesterday, 25 years after its first travelled through town.

Princeton medal bearers ran across the Bridge of Dream, Brown Bridge and into Veteran’s Square for an end-of-day celebration.

One medal was passed between 600 communities along a 12,000-kilometre relay route across Canada to raise money for spinal cord research.

Princeton’s medal bearers were Robert Crucil, Andy Evans, Shelby Maynard, Elef Christensen, Dierra Maynard, Alicia Myers, Cameron Mcleod and Ken Carlson.

The relay team passed through Cawston, Keremeos and Hedley before Princeton.
