We woke up right where our first meeting was scheduled: the Windsor Mountain International Camp. Richard Herman(red jacket) and his family came to join in the festivities. He and his wife ran this camp for 47 years and he is now retired but loves to come and visit.

The location is extremely beautiful, with a nearby lake that is a joy to campers.

After breakfast and before our presentation there was some time for a few games of ping-pong.

Our international team of runners introduced ourselves to a very international group of campers.

Guessing our countries: Guess which country this kangaroo is from.

Harita from New Zealand and Sweta from Nepal.


There were hundreds of campers and a few very attentive dogs waiting to participate in our song and in holding the torch.

These are some of the children who remember us from four years ago. Some of the even remembered the World Harmony Run song.

Some action and music to wake up to.

Richard Herman accepts our Certificate of Appreciation for his many decades of serving the children in this wonderful camping and educational environment.

Jake and Kerry Labovitz, the current Directors of Windsor Mountain, receive ther Certificate of Appreciation as Richard holds the torch with them.

The children very carefully pass the torch as they think of something meaningful and peaceful.

The staff members also shared in the passing of peace with the torch.

"Woof woof, I can't hold the torch but I can catch this ball. That's peaceful too."

We are extremely grateful to this very big crowd of happy campers.

Richard and his family offer a few peace songs as well.

Better not mess with this guard...

Getting ready to go out and run.

Harita happily on the road again in New Hampshire.

We had a flat tire in our RV and these kind gentlemen from Walmart Auto Care fixed it for a very small price.

Thank you for your contribution to peace and the Peace Run.

After lunch the men's team was on the road towards Portland, Maine.

After a long day on the road we finally had a wonderful meal at a nearby Asian Restaurant treated by our own teammate, Pragati, who just arrived a few days ago from New York. Thank you Pragati and all those who join us or support us in any way. Without the constant support we would not be able to carry the torch even for a single day.

Please send us a message, we would LOVE to hear from you!

See who is sending us messages.
