This Sunday, August 7, 2011, is the 10th anniversary of the Bus Stop Hop! Haven’t heard of this event before? Think of it like the TV show The Amazing Race but on transit and with wheelchairs. I spoke with Brad Jacobson (the guy in the video) of the BC Paraplegic Association in June about what exactly goes on during the hop as well as what the Bus Stop Hop means to him and others with physical challenges. Also, check out last year’s post of the event. The event has a little bit of everything from excitement and competition to empowerment and education.

Besides being a fun way to spend a day on the buses, SkyTrain, SeaBus and with your fellow competitors, there’s also a BBQ supper, a cash bar and entertainment! If you missed the deadline to register for the hop, luckily they still have a few spots left! To RSVP, contact Lydia at lwalczak@bcpara.org or 604-326-123 Shelly Milstein at 604-326-1222.

Enjoy the hop, and if you participate, I’d love to see pictures!
