The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global relay that connects individuals and organisations around the globe in a sincere and dynamic commitment to Peace in our world. Since its inception in 1987 the flaming peace torch has been carried through over 150 nations and touched the lives of millions of people. Formerly known as The World Harmony Run, The Peace Run does not seek to raise money or highlight any political cause, but simply strives to create goodwill among peoples of all nations.
By passing the torch from one person to another, the relay offers people from all nations the opportunity to express their hopes and dreams for a better, brighter future. Athletes, schoolchildren, national and regional representatives and people from all walks of life hold the torch to express their commitment to Peace in our world. Together we can make a difference!
The Peace Run is organized by an international network of volunteers inspired by Sri Chinmoy’s vision of a peaceful world. Coordinators in each country partner locally with schools, community groups, sporting organizations, city and state government departments to bring the run to the community as a service encouraging international friendship and understanding.
The Peace Run relay teams in each participating country are made up of volunteer runners, who have dedicated their time and energy to bring the Run to communities around the globe.
