Behind the wonderful days of the relay – the hundreds of smiling faces and inspired lives – there has been a small army of supporters. They have offered vehicles, accommodated our runners in the many towns and communities we have passed through, shared their dreams, offered food and hospitality, taken their own steps for peace by participating in so many diverse ways.
The Peace Run is a testament to the good hearts and shared dreams of people everywhere, and the level of support we have found nationwide highlights the Peace Run’s message – you and I together, we are the peace-makers, the bridge builders, we are the ones who will help to usher in a brighter future.
For this reason we are especially delighted to acknowledge some of our major supporters and sponsors, and to offer our gratitude for their services and for the many ways they have made this great relay possible.
