The Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee (TO2015) has revealed the names of nine familiar Canadian celebrities who will participate in the TO2015 Torch Relay, which will begin on May 31st.

Steve will be carrying the Torch in the Town of Milton, Ontario, on Tuesday, June 23rd. Steve will be using his preferred mode of transportation, by riding his bicycle to complete the leg of the relay from the Town of Milton Sports Centre to the Milton Centre for the Arts.

"It is a wonderful honour to be nominated to participate in the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games Torch relay," commented Bauer. "In my competitive years as a cyclist, I was so focused on the competition of my sport that I never engaged in the ceremonious events. This time I will join the celebration in Milton, where I have worked developing programming at Canada's new velodrome. It is truly a pleasure to join the Torch Relay team and contribute in the build up of excitement prior to the games. I would like to extend my gratitude to OLG for my nomination and this opportunity!"

Other celebrities, including Blue Rodeo lead signer Jim Cuddy, Olympic freestyle skier Alexandre Bilodeau, Olympic figure skater Patrick Chan, have also been announced to the Torchbearer team.
