Karen Cockburn will do double-duty during this summer’s Pan Am Games.

Along with representing Canada on the trampoline, the 34-year-old will be Whitchurch-Stouffville’s community torchbearer, the municipality announced Monday.

The torch relay comes through town on the evening of June 26, which is also opening night of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Strawberry Festival.

“Karen is an amazing athlete and we are fortunate to have her carry the Pan Am flame as our community torchbearer,” said Mayor Justin Altmann in a media release.

The torch relay is 41 days long and starts in Toronto May 30. Each of the 3,000 torchbearers will complete, an average, a 200-metre relay segment.

The torch returns to Toronto July 10 for the games’ opening ceremonies.
