The international runners from the North American leg of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is currently travelling around the United States, as it visits a multitude of towns and local communities which form a cross-section of American society.

The Peace Run was founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987 to offer practical opportunities for those wishing to create a more harmonious world. The motto of the Peace Run is Peace begins with me - and one person at a time, the Run hopes to kindle the ideals of goodwill and peace inside the hearts of everyone they meet.

“World peace can blossom throughout the length and breadth of the world only when the world-peace-dreamers, world-peace-lovers and world-peace-servers desperately, sleeplessly and breathlessly long for the full manifestation of peace here on earth.”
