The Torch, arriving at Peñas Blancas from Nicaragua, will be received by MEP minister Sonia Marta Mora from her Nicaraguan counterpart, Miriam Soledad Raudez.

The Torch will then pass from the hands of the minister to Bianca who will then pass it off other students, who will carry it tandem the 386 kilometres across country for celebration of Costa Rica’s 194 years of independence ceremony Monday night in Cartago.

“I left school (sixth grade) at 12, because my family did not have money to pay for transport to and from school. I decided to complete high school at night, to give my son a better future,” said Bianca, who received a government grant to travel the six kilometres from her home to school.
