The Peace Run Team is very grateful to Marriott hotel in Bethesda for providing our mens team accommodation for two nights!

A few great students led us to the ceremony at their school.

The team received a very warm welcome from Eagle View Elementary School. The children prepared a beautiful song!

It was "Stress Less Laugh More Week" and "Pajamas Day" at the school. If we had known about it earlier, we would have worn our pajamas too! :)

Beautiful artwork dedicated to Peace.

A moment of silence.

Children give us so much hope for the future.

Thamara teaching the students our motto: "Peace begins with me!"

The kids did a good job learning the World Harmony song!

A big thank you to Principal Kyungjoo An and all the teachers. Their work is so important for World Peace. We felt tremendous inspiration and oneness.

Evie Eagle became a Peace runner!

We were so happy to visit Eagle Elementary School, where "Everyone belongs and loves to learn!"

Good friends and good runners!

Uugantsetseg was flying along the beautiful county road.

A peaceful moment.

It was a privilege to meet Lucy Montalvo, Director of Starr Hill Pathways, and Ben Allen, Executive Director of The Equity Center. Starr Hill Pathways is an initiative of the Equity Centre, which is dedicated to building partnerships between the University of Virginia and the local Community.

The Equity Centre will receive our Peace Run Torch-Bearer Award tomorrow!
