Peace Run DinnerBy Ina Babic, co-editor of Vegetarian Living NZ, the New Zealand Vegetarian Society quarterly magazine.
The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global relay seeking to inspire the creation of a more peaceful world. As a symbol of peace and harmony, runners carry a flaming torch, passing it from hand to hand, heart to heart.
The motto of the Peace Run is “Peace Begins With Me!” – highlighting the importance of how each individual can make a positive contribution to creating a happier and more peaceful world. Since its establishment in 1987 the Peace Run has had over 7 million participants from 155 countries around the world. Earlier this year the Vegetarian Society team had the pleasure of attending the annual Peace Run dinner where Olympian Sarah Crowley Ross received the Torch-Bearer Award.
This award recognises remarkable people who have inspired their communities, their cities and nations. We enjoyed hearing stories of the Peace Run and a delicious vegetarian dinner at The Indian Lounge in Mt Eden, Auckland. Keep up the great work Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run!
