On Friday, April 1st, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run 2016 visited Marymount students on campus for a visit and presentation. Members of the Peace Runners will be in the Paris area, running to their next destination and we are delighted that they have selected Marymount, Paris as a partner school. Our Marymount, Paris "Peace Keeper Students" welcomed them and escort them to the gym for the assembly.
Founded in 1987, by Sri Chinmoy, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global relay that seeks to promote international friendship and understanding. Since its inception it has traversed over 100 nations and touched the lives of millions of people.
The Peace Run is organized by an international network of volunteers inspired by Sri Chinmoy's vision of a more peaceful world. Coordinators in each country partner locally with schools, community groups, sporting organizations, city and state government departments to bring the run to the community as a service encouraging international friendship and understanding.
