#150. The Impossibility Challenger Trailer (Leiria, Portugal – June 9&10, 2018)

Impossibility Challenger is a record festival that provides a platform and an opportunity for anyone to try and break a world record in any non-Olympic discipline. The records can be athletic, funny, creative or even a bit silly, as long as they are challenging and require some serious training or preparation. The Impossibility Challenger was first organized in Zürich, Switzerland in 1982. Guru visited the event twice in the following years. From 2002 on the Impossibility Challenger took place also in Germany, New Zealand, Hungary and Portugal.

This year the event took place in Leiria, Portugal on June 9&10. The next edition of the Impossibility Challenger will happen in November in the Netherlands.

#123. Peace Run (Peace Arch – June 10, 2018)

We were honoured to be asked to participate in the Hands Across the Border ceremony at Peace Arch Park for the second time. The Peace Run was prominently recognized on the event’s program, and were the first booth people saw when they entered the park. Hundreds of Scouts stopped by the booth to learn about peace and make crepe paper torches. The event organizers even incorporated the Peace Run into a scavenger hunt for which participants needed to write down the Peace Run’s official motto: “Peace Begins with Me.” 

The event was a celebration of unity between Canadian and American girls and boys Scouts, and featured booths from many inspiring organizations. Peace Runners from both Vancouver and Seattle made the drive to Peace Arch Park, supplying smiles and crepe paper torch-making skills to all.

The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global torch relay dedicated to the simple idea that world peace begins within the heart of each individual. Founded in 1987 by Sri Chinmoy, the Peace Run has covered over 395,000 miles (632,000 km) in over 150 nations and has touched the lives of millions.
