What Sparked Your Interest in Being a TO2015 Torch Bearer?

What sparked your interest in being a torch Bearer?

I wanted to be a part of a large sporting event so that I could share in the excitement and the spirit of the Games. In turn, when the opportunity came up, I accepted immediately; I thought this is a once in a life time experience.

How are you personally involved in sports or fitness? 

I’m pretty active and quite focused on personal health and nutrition. I do weight training three or four times a week. I’ve completed a 10K run on Mother’s Day, the Ride of Heart bike ride and will be part of OneWalk to conquer cancer walk coming up later this year.

Additionally, I have two girls who I try to keep active through different sport teams such as swimming and tennis.
