Participate in the 2015 Parapan Am Torch Relay!
Sport fans and Pan Am/Parapan Am supporters can now be involved with this summer’s events by doing more than cheering for athletes from the stands! While announcing the torch relay route for the 2015 Parapan Am games, set to take place in Toronto and around the GTA, organizers also told the public that they can become a part of the process.
How? By signing-up to be a torch bearer. Anyone over the age of 13 is considered eligible, and can apply online until April 19. Those selected will carry the flame at various points of the relay route, which stretches for 700 km and will pass through several Ontario communities throughout the summer, making a final stop on August 9. Without a doubt, this is a great opportunity for Canadians to become part of history!
