The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global relay seeking to inspire the creation of a more peaceful world. As a symbol of peace and harmony, runners carry a flaming torch, passing it from hand to hand, heart to heart.
The motto of the Peace Run is "Peace Begins With Me!" – stressing the importance of how each individual can make a positive contribution to creating a happier and more peaceful world. 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run which was, for a number of years, known as the World Harmony Run.
"Lasting peace must begin within the depths of the individual, and from there spread in ever-widening circles as a dynamic force for world change." – Sri Chinmoy
Upcoming Event: Friday July 27, 2018.
Papakura's Edmund Hillary School is hosting a Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run event on Friday the 27th of July. Two Peace Run teams will carry torches from Clevedon in the east and from Clarks Beach in the west, and will converge at Edmund Hillary School school at 10 am. There the children will have the chance to express their views on peace through different activities such as skits, interviews and songs. Redhill School and Edmund Hillary School are both part of Kootuitui ki Papakura and will combine to send a team of students to run the last 3km into Edmund Hillary School with the Peace Run teams. Following the presentations of the Peace Run team and the students all those present will run with the torch around the sports field as the final highlight of the morning.
