• The Pan Am Torch Relay started with a flame-lighting ceremony in Teotihuacán, Mexico, on May 28.
* The flame began its Canadian tour on May 30 in Toronto and will make its final stop on July 10 at the Opening Ceremony of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games after travelling through more than 130 communities in Ontario, as well as five stops outside the province (Halifax, Montréal, Richmond, Calgary and Winnipeg).
* The relay involves over 3,000 torchbearers. The majority of them were chosen through a public contest; the others were selected by sponsors and Games stakeholders, including the communities the torch relay passes through.

Richmond Hill MP Costas Menegakis is pleased to welcome the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games Torch Relay today in Richmond Hill. The Torch Relay community celebration will take place at Richmond Green Park from 5:30 pm to 8 pm with the flame arrival and cauldron lighting taking place at approximately 7 pm.

“I am thrilled that we are welcoming the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games Torch Relay to our community” said MP Menegakis. “As the flame approaches its final destination, I am pleased to share in the enthusiasm and pride that the Torch Relay inspires in everyone here in Richmond Hill. Today’s celebration shines a light on our talented artistic and cultural community while instilling pride in our country’s success as a leading sport nation, especially during the Year of Sport in Canada.”
The Government of Canada, through the Toronto 2015 Pan & Parapan American Games – Community Celebrations Fund, provided $10,000 to the Town of Richmond Hill in support of a major celebration, allowing residents to experience and celebrate the Pan Am Games through local artistic and cultural expressions during the Torch Relay.

Costas Menegakis is the Member of Parliament for Richmond Hill and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration.
