Williams to carry torch during state’s bicentennial relay

More by this author

Indianapolis Recorder President Shannon Williams will represent the historic 121-year-old publication during Marion County’s 2016 Bicentennial Torch Relay

Throughout the relay, the torch will be primarily transported by people, passing the flame from torchbearer to torchbearer. Patterned after the Olympic Torch Relay, Indiana’s version began Sept. 9 in Corydon, Indiana, and will ultimately pass through all 92 of the state’s counties, covering 3,200 miles over a five-week period, averaging 90 miles per day.

In Marion County, the torch will be passed by 34 torchbearers, who were chosen to represent the history and diversity of Marion County. Many of the Marion County torchbearers are known in the community as leaders, philanthropists, survivors and inspirations.

The Marion County relay is Oct. 15.
