Youngsters hear from Paralympic legend
The B.C. Sports Hall of Fame was in Merritt on Oct. 3 and 4 to present a program called “The Hero In You” to youngsters from the five elementary schools in town.
The featured speaker was five-time Paralympian Richard Peter from Duncan on Vancouver Island.
Affectionately known as ‘The Bear’, and a proud member of the Cowichan Tribes, Peter has been a member of Canada’s national wheelchair basketball team since 1994.
