Coca-Cola Selects 22 Inspiring Americans To Carry The Olympic Flame In The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay

This summer, 22 outstanding Americans selected by Coca-Cola will light up the streets of Oxford, England as they carry the Olympic Flame in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay. Among them will be 10 teenagers from across the United States, Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan, Olympic swimmer Summer Sanders and renowned fitness icon Jake Steinfeld of Body by Jake ®.

Each of the 22 torchbearers has shown limitless creativity in helping make a difference around the world. Some of their accomplishments include:

  • Raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research, environmental education, food pantries and tornado victims;
  • Sending 8,600+ shoes to disadvantaged communities, 75,000+ care packages to deployed U.S. troops, and countless uniforms and educational supplies to school children in Kenya;
  • Teaching computer, math and science skills to senior citizens and low-income students in the U.S. and Africa.

“Each torchbearer’s generosity and commitment to give back to their communities near and far has inspired us here at Coca-Cola,” said Celeste Bottorff, Vice President of Living Well, Coca-Cola North America. “We now hope their participation in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will motivate others around the world to make a positive difference in their communities.”

The Olympians and teens will be joined by thought leaders from six national health organizations who have made incredible strides in the fields of health and science. They will also run with three Coca-Cola North America employees who have committed themselves to giving back to their local communities.

“Coca-Cola has given me the opportunity of a lifetime! I get to participate in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay and represent my country,” said Peyton Medick, founder of Peyton’s Promise, an organization that provides support to local food pantries. “I am excited to carry the Flame and remind people around the world how we all can make a change in our communities.”
