• Story 40: The Ultimate Story – Our Members

On February 5th ,we set out to celebrate our 40th birthday by promoting 40 of the top wheelchair sports stories of the past 40 years. In our quest to do so, we’ve reached into the BCWSA vaults to show you old photos and videos; relived Paralympic memories; interviewed families who have impacted our organization’s success; celebrated milestones and victories; said goodbye to old friends; and even traveled to Prince George to show you a program that’s creating tomorrow’s Paralympians. We’ve loved hearing from you and seeing the great entries we received into our photo contest. 

Forty stories, over 12,000 words, 44 contest entries, hundreds of photos and 16 videos later, we’re done and all that’s left to do is say thank you. So…thank you, BCWSA members! We owe our success over the past 40 years to the dedication and commitment of the thousands of athletes, coaches, volunteers, fans, staff, builders, friends, fans and family who make up the BC wheelchair sports community. We can’t wait to see how your energy and passion will play out over the next 40 years.

To say thank you, we prepared a little photo/video montage. The music (appropriately enough) is “40 Day Dream” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Enjoy!
