The Rio 2016 Paralympic torch was unveiled.

With the four Paralympic values inscribed on its side in Braille, the torch will spread the spirit of the Games across Brazil.

The torch design is much like that of the Rio Olympic torch but also includes the four values of the Paralympics — courage, determination, inspiration and equality — written in Braille on the handle along with the words, “Rio 2016 Paralympic Games Torch Relay.”

The Rio 2016 Paralympics, the first Games in South America, run from Sept. 7-18, following a torch relay through Brazil that begins Sept. 1.
