Vitalograph are delighted to support the Paralympic Heritage Flame Lighting event being held at Stoke Mandeville Stadium on 2 September 2016. An audience of thousands, plus millions around the globe, will watch as a Paralympic athlete ignites the heritage flame. This single flame will travel across the world and, together with five Brazilian regional flames, will help light the Paralympic flame in Rio on 5 September. A two day torch relay then begins that will arrive in the Olympic stadium for the start of the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
As a marketing-leading manufacturer of award-winning cardio-respiratory devices we are proud to be part of a ceremony that celebrates exceptional individuals who have overcome physical challenges to compete in the second largest sporting event in the world.
“The fact that the event is taking place in Buckinghamshire, where our company has been based for over 52 years, is something that we are very proud of”, says Vitalograph Managing Director, Bernard Garbe.
