Alex Bracewell is an Electoral Area director of the Cariboo Regional District. Alex saw in the 2010 Legacies Now’s Measuring UP Accessibility and Inclusion Fund, the unique opportunity to provide wilderness trail experiences for persons with disabilities. He organized a grass roots community committee to design and build an innovative trail at Tatlayoko Lake using recycled mining belts to create a surface suitable for wheelchairs, walkers, strollers and the like. With a goal of 210 kilometers by 2010, Alex’s leadership in building accessible-friendly trails is a role model for other communities and, more importantly, is part of his dream ‘to make the Cariboo Chilcotin one of the most attractive accessible tourism destinations in the world’.
