What Does Being a Torch Bearer for the TO2015 GAMES Mean to You?

  1. What does being a torch bearer mean to you?

Being a torch bearer means participating in a pre-games event across the Provinces that brings attention and visible representation to the group of Networking Academy instructors and students that are volunteering in a technological capacity.

Further, participating as a torchbearer celebrates the Games arriving to the Province of Ontario, and demonstrates pride in our Province and our heritage.

  1. If you had a chance to do one thing out of the ordinary when carrying the torch, what would it be?

One thing out of the ordinary that I would love to do when carrying the torch, would be to reinforce the culture of our area, as follows:

At the end of my turn and just before passing the torch to the next runner, I carry the torch through a local Tim Horton’s drive-through and place an order for a Medium double-double and a Canadian Maple donut.  It signifies a food, habit and meeting place that is widely prevalent in Ontario, a part of our work and leisure life, and a business that is wildly successful.
