Pan Am Games Torch Passes Through City

Posted on Sunday, May 31, 2015 11:17 AM

The spirit of the Pan Am Games is alive in Thunder Bay today.

The torch made morning stops across the city, with local Olympian Curt Harnett lighting the flame at City Hall.

Harnett says there's no better place than his hometown to build momentum, since this is where Terry Fox was forced to end his run. He says it's a fitting place to carry that story and inspiration towards the July 10 Games.
