Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Torch Relay media briefings to be held for Lytton,
Hope, and Maple Ridge

VANCOUVER, March 5 /CNW/ - The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) will hold media briefings on Sunday March 7, and Monday March 8, related to the 2010 Paralympic Torch Relay celebration.

The briefings are intended to help media prepare to cover each event and include an overview of Day 7 - March 9, and Day 9 - March 11 when the Paralympic Flame will visit Lytton, Hope, and Maple Ridge. It is critical for media planning to cover either of these events to attend the appropriate briefing.

Additional story ideas will be provided as well as details on how media can access torchbearers in advance of the celebrations. A question and answer portion will follow.

Media accreditation to access the celebration will be issued immediately following the briefing, and will also be available at the celebration site approximately two hours before each Paralympic Torch Relay Celebration begins.
