Special thanks to the Wyndam Garden Stillwater for offering our team complimentary and discounted rooms. We really enjoyed our stay.

Arpan prepared his famous Peace Run Veggie Stew. It was the perfect lunch meal for the team. Fast to consume and easy  to digest between running sections.

Puroga makes friends with lots of locals during his running sections.

We took a short break from running to get a quick haircut.

We were very excited to visit the Boys and Girls Club, Memorial Park Clubhouse in Oklahoma City by our good friend A. Jaye. We have visited him for many years and each time we come we are blown away by his enthusiastic welcome. A. Jaye would have to be the most passionate, inspiring and encouraging person that we have ever met. He is so willing and able to be of service to these kids. You can really feel that the source of all this community service is love. He loves all of them like they are his family.  I hope the OKC recognizes just how valuable he is to the community.

We love seeing inspiring quotes on the walls at these Boys and Girls Clubs. The kids at the Club receive so much from seeing these quotes hanging in the halls.

All the kids responded with great excitement when Arpan began teaching the "World-Harmony-Run" song.

Homagni demonstrates how to destroy peace by pushing over his fellow runners.

Victory after knocking his competitors out of the race.

Thankfully the girls demonstrated that there are lots of way to be kind to one another.

The kids took a moment of silence to feel peace in their  heart.

After screaming with excitement, the kids had the opportunity to remain quiet for just a few minutes to feel some inner peace.

These are some of the many staff members that tirelessly offer their time to look after the kids in the different programs.

Hanging on the walls were portraits of some very famous people that belonged to various Boys and Girls Clubs in their youth.

One of the staff members led the Peace Train around the yard.

We said our goodbyes to A. Jaye and we look forward to meeting him again in 2 years.

Picaso Cafe kindly offered us a meal. Thank you.

We said goodbye to Rupasi today who had the opportunity to be a coordinator for the run and also to participate in the events over the last 10 days.
