200 singing children gave a vigorous welcome to the torch team as it entered the gym at Fleming School . Shishir Pauk was inspired to give a talk on the school’s motto, "we’re all related". A team from the school relayed 1km to meet J.R. Reid School students halfway. The relay continued to J.R. Reid where 250 cheering students cheered as the athletes reached the auditorium.

A team from Yellow Quill joined the core team for a 2km run to meet Fort La Reine students. Councilor Dave Quinn spoke about the occasion "You are doing an important thing – making people think about harmony – we need it in Canada…if we can do it here, we can spread it around the world." Then the run continued on to Fort La Reine School.

Winnipeg – Friday, May 20:

This action-packed day began with an inspiring interview on a popular morning TV show called “The Big Breakfast”. Host Jon Llungberg was very supportive, and the conversation with the three runners was very uplifting. Even the other guests and TV crew were keen to hear about the Harmony Run. Andrew Mynarski School welcomed the Harmony Run at the opening ceremony of its Track and Field Meet, and students sang the World Harmony song as a team of runners did a lap with the torch. A TV station filmed the event.
