B.C. first responder finishes tire-flipping journey – CTV News

~CTV News~ A British Columbia man who was the first responder to a horrific luge accident during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics has finished a personal journey that he undertook in memory of the athlete who died.

Terrance Kosikar arrived at the base of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler on Saturday, completing the final kilometre of his mission to flip a 400-pound tractor tire for a kilometre a day across seven B.C. mountain peaks, all to raise awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder in first responders.
