Aras Janeliunas to be Torchbearer for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games Torch Relay

The Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games Torch Relay is a 41-day journey that will share the Pan Am spirit in more than 130 communities.

The Pan Am flame was lit in May 2015 during a traditional ceremony in Teotihuacan, Mexico, before it traveled to Canada. The torch relay started in Canada on May 30, 2015, and will make its final stop on July 10, 2015, at the Opening Ceremony of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. The Pan Am flame represents the history and spirit of the Games; it is a symbol that unites the 41 Pan American Sports Organization member nations.

Toronto Lithuanian Aras Janeliunas has been assigned to be the torch-bearer for the very first leg of the relay segment, on Tuesday, July 7th, at 11:30am. He is set to start at 280 Colonel Samuel Park Drive, Etobicoke near Father John Redmond Catholic School, and end further down the street at 7 Colonel Samuel Park Drive.

All those who are able are invited to come and support Aras with a show of Lithuanian flags, posters, and cheers, as he participates in this significant Toronto event. More information can be found at
