On Sunday, December 27th, 2009, the City of Cambridge will welcome the Olympic Torch to the city.

The City of Cambridge will be among the prominent Canadian locations on the Olympic Torch Relay route. Residents anxious to catch the Olympic spirit will have a chance to see the Olympic Flame in person on December 27th, 2009 as it passes through our city and makes its way towards the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the citizens of Cambridge and the surrounding communities to witness this ceremonial wonder as it makes its way through our city to the winter games in Vancouver,” says Cambridge Mayor Doug Craig. “We are very proud that the torch will leave its legacy here in Cambridge.”

Residents interested in applying for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the Olympic Flame can apply at iCoke.ca or rbc.com/carrythetorch. Coca-Cola and RBC, the relay’s presenting partners have the exclusive rights for the public to enter the Olympic Torchbearer program and are looking for Canadian applicants who commit to live healthier or are inspired to create a stronger country by volunteering or making sustainable choices.
