Peace Run in Ortonville at Lakeside Park

Ortonville enjoyed a stop by a few participating in the 2018 route of the SRI CHINMOY ONENESS-HOME PEACE RUN last night.  (welcomed by Mary Hillman and Kevin Benson of the Big Stone Lake Area Chamber of Commerce)  The Peace Run is a global torch relay that symbolizes humanity’s universal aspiration for a more peaceful world. Now in its third decade, the Peace Run is humanity’s largest and longest grassroots effort for peace. Since its inception, the torch has visited more than 140 nations!  Check out their website & the 2018 North American route at this link!
