United States 16 June: Seattle, WA
Hello Peace Run from Seattle!
Virtual Peace Run celebrates our Seattle highlights from 2018 with our visit to the Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club...
IN 2018: Peace Run is joined by long time friend and peace lover Ras Manhas who received the Torch Bearer Award at Silence Heart Nest Restaurant. Mr. Manhas pays tribute to Peace Run founder Sri Chinmoy at the statue of his likeness in Fremont.
Other Torch Bearer recipients in 2018, Peace Runners and friends joined a procession from the original event to Sri Chinmoy's statue.
In 2020, Peace Run can still happen with care and social distancing. Peace will always find a way to blossom.
Songs, stories and a moment of silence keep the Peace Run tradition going in Seattle, 6 feet apart. Peace knows no separation.
