Canada 7 June : Winnipeg

Events in Winnipeg began with a visit to the Al-Hijra Islamic School with the grade 3 and 4 classes. Team member Shishir, a Winnipeg local, introduced the students to the World Harmony Run while student volunteers held up the banner.

Flicker the Clown made an entrance with harmonious greetings.

Overlooking the Red River, the runners relayed the torch and flags across the school lawn.

Very enthusiastic runners with many wishes for world harmony!

After running, the grade 3 class created Peace Birds with an impressive array of colours and messages.

Special thanks to teacher Lori Peters for her inspiration to co-ordinate this event.

In the afternoon we brought the torch to the Victoria Albert Elementary School. All classes, from nursery to grade 6, assembled in the gym and sang the World Harmony Run song as team members with the school running club ran with the torch around the gathering. Inspiring poems were read by student writers and the grades 4, 5 and 6 students performed the song Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars. World Harmony Run team member Purnakama, the music teacher, conducted the choir. We are very grateful to her for organizing the whole school to participate.

A harmony walk around Victoria Albert Elementary School gave an opportunity for everyone to make a wish for peace.
