New Zealand 15 March: Team B - Blenheim to Nelson

In Blenheim we stayed at Cherylea Motel and Middle Park Motel. Thank you to both of our generous hosts for donating their time and space.

On our way to our first destination, St Mary's School.

The presentation was held outside in the sunny courtyard

The bright and cheerful students of St Mary's School of Blenheim stole the hearts of the Harmony Run team!

Two students recieve the World Harmony Run's Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of St Mary's School.

Capturing the moment - the flame takes on the shape of a bird.

The presentation was broadcast live by Natasha Knox from More FM.

After the presentation we were delighted to have an escort of young athletes from both St Mary's and from our next school, Whitney Street School.

Whitney Street students lead the way to their school.

Holding the torch high on the way to our next stop.

We were met at the gate by the Whitney Street students, who showed us their beautiful peace-themed artwork as we ran in.

The Mayor of Blenheim, Alistair Sowman, who recieved a Torch Bearer Award for his work supporting youth in Marlborough.

The children make a wish for world peace.

One of our favourite parts of the World Harmony Run is making new friends.

Big smiles all around. Thank you Whitney Street School!

On the road again, we head through the hills towards sunny Nelson.

Meeting some animal friends along the way...

...and some baby goats join the World Harmony Run!

In the afternoon we arrived at Rai Valley Area School, a beautiful school with lovely gardens and buildings and a great bunch of kids.

Singing the World Harmony Run song.

Smiles from Rai Valley students.

Everyone gets a chance to hold the Peace Torch.
