Self-Transcendence 2 mile race!  A local favorite!  Mahiyan gets ready to lead a moment of silence and start the Race!

Great job runners!!!

Our special event today was a Torch-Bearer Ceremony at the Sri Chinmoy Peace Garden.

Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run Executive Director, Salil Wilson, offers some opening comments about the importance of taking time to value each others contributions to society.  We really are a World-Family.

Congratulations to our first Torch-Bearer recipients for today, Yogi Triathlete founders, Jess and B.J Gumkowski. We first met them when they came to Noble Learning to interview Harita about her experience completing the 3100 mile race for their super inspiring Podcast. They help athletes become the best they can be by integrating body, heart, mind and soul and their philosophy is greatly aligned with Sri Chinmoy's. It has been a great joy to connect with them both, and we look forward to connecting more in the future!

Congratulations Ron Sandvik!  Your hard work is definitely creating a better, more peaceful world!  Ron has been a friend and guest of local vegetarian restaurant Jyoti Bihanga for many years and we have have gotten to know him well through that.  His positive attitude has nurtured his students at Mesa College for a long time.  His love for nature expressed itself in his tireless dedication to creating a trail for contemplation, reflection and communion with nature are noble and worthy of recognition.  Therefore we are happy and honored to offer the Sri Chinmoy Oneness Home Peace Run Torch Bearer award to him.

Many thanks to Agragati! He really does a fantastic job covering and promoting the Peace Run on social media.

Roxana's cheerful service is an excellent addition to the team!

We headed out to run 6.5 miles from the Peace Garden to Mesa College.  Our friend Banu enthusistically lead the way.

Run, run, run, run!

Thumbs up for peace!

Ron's enthusiasm is contagious!
