Today a delegation from the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run met with Mayor of the Gold Coast Tom Tate at the Mayoral Lounge in the Council Chambers. Since he had already met with the Peace Run in previous years, he enthusiastically embraced the Peace Torch, knowing its symbolism as an international unifying force for good.

In the Mayoral Lounge we also met with Katrina Metcalfe, the Mayor’s International Relations Officer, and the Mayor’s Chief of Staff, Wayne Moran.
The Mayor asked us all about the plans for the 30th anniversary of the Peace Run next year. And as we explained that the route of the Run was passing through the Gold Coast on its way from Brisbane to Perth, he extended an invitation for all the runners to meet him, once again, at his Chambers.
We also spoke about the upcoming talk at Southern Cross University, Gold Coast campus, about the Peace Run and its founder Sri Chinmoy, to be held on June 21, 2016.
