• Story 18: The Abbott-Peter Family

Today, we continue Family Week of the “40 Years. 40 Stories. 40 Days” campaign by celebrating the Abbott-Peter clan. Most people in the B.C. wheelchair sports community are familiar with Marni Abbott-Peter and Richard Peter, who are two of B.C.’s most decorated Paralympians. Less well known are the contributions of their families, who have done everything from travel worldwide to cheer on Team Canada to create art for logos and awards.

Instead of devoting a few thousand words to the contributions of this family, we decided to put together a little video together with some photos supplied by both families. Music: The Avett Brothers – “Head Full of Doubt/ Road Full of Promise” from the “I and Love and You” album.
