Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run Nepal 2018 (11-16 February)
We just had a spectacular Peace Run with over 30 team members participating from 17 different countries! The opening ceremony in Kathmandu City was held in Nagarkot at Sri Chinmoy's Statue, with the Guinness-World Record attempt by Ashrita Furman. We had a wonderful program at Nepal Music Center in Kathmandu, then moved to Pokhara city for a much fuller program: Ceremony at the Peace Stupa, 9 school visitis and inner city running with the mayor of Pokhara.
Thank you very much everybody who participated in this year's Peace Run in Nepal. The international team is looking forward to coming back to this beautiful country in the near future!!
