Torch Relay

The Torch Relay builds excitement and sets the stage for the Empire State Winter Games! Over the course of five days, two torches will travel throughout New York State. Along the two routes, our Relay Team will be stopping at several Community Bank branches and sporting clubs, as they make their way to Lake Placid to light the cauldron of the Opening Ceremony! 

Follow the torches on social media with #ESWGTorchRelay
