United States 14 May: Santa Fe, NM - Cebolla, NM
Running through the High Desert
A big thank you to the Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza for hosting us. It has been supporting the Peace Run for many years, with warmth, generosity and enthusiasm!
The local coordinator, Sunamita Lim, holds the Peace torch. Thank you for organising two fantastic days in Santa Fe.
The Constituent Liaison, Mindi Smith, and her colleagues, welcomed The Peace Run Team on behalf of Governor Susana Martinez, who wasn't able to attend. The runners introduced themselves and sang the Peace Run Song, composed by the founder of the Run, Sri Chinmoy.
A welcoming letter from Governor Martinez.
“I’m happy to extend the warmest welcome to our beautiful capital city of Santa Fe. As the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run travels throughout New Mexico, you bring a history of promoting peace in a positive way.
My wish is for all people to have respect for human life, and I am grateful you have chosen New Mexico to bring your message of peace.
I am humbled to think of all who have been touched by your mission and goal of achieving peace in the world. I wish you success in your run.”
Thank you Yashoda Naidoo and Annapurna's World Vegetarian Cafe for your most delicious wraps! Every runner loved this flavourful meal that the owner Yashoda most generously offered.
