Apply for the Paralympic Torch Relay
posted by: Administrator
If you were put forward for the Olympic Torch Relay, but weren't successful, there's no reason for you to miss out. The London 2012 Paralympic Torch Relay will begin at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire (where the Paralympics started out) on Tuesday 28 August 2012 and will be carried to the Olympic Stadium to officially open the Paralympic Games the next day.
The organisers are looking for teams of five to work together, taking the flame approximately 750 metres before handing on to the next team along the route.
You can nominate your own team of five or a team you know by visiting www.bt.com/London2012 or calling 08000 23 23 99. Nominators and Torchbearers must be at least 12 years old and nominations must be submitted by midnight on the 20 January.
