Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run Visits Gads Hill Center
This month, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run visited Gads Hill Center's Club Learn program for a peace ceremony that culminated in the donation of a peace tree and plaque to GHC's Pilsen site. The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global torch relay that embodies humanity's universal aspiration for peace. Since its inception in 1987, the Run has traversed over 100 nations; it does not seek to raise money or highlight a political cause, but to create goodwill among peoples of all nations.
Throughout the ceremony, GHC's Club Learn participants celebrated peace with the Run's representatives, including sharing what the word "peace" means to them, which you can watch in the video on the left.
In addition to donating a peace tree and plaque to Gads Hill Center's site in Pilsen, the Run's representatives shared stories and information about their nations of origin, played games with youth in Club Learn, and performed the Peace Run song you hear in the video.
Gads Hill Center would like to thank the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run for bringing the torch to our organization and sharing aspirations for a peaceful world with GHC's youth. We hope to see you again in the future!
