#125. Peace Run – Canada Day (Ottawa, Canada – July 1, 2018)

On Canada Day (July 1, 2018) a small team of local Peace Runners passed the torch to people that they met in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. The simple message of the Peace Run is that peace begins in the heart of each person and then spreads out to the world at large; the team invited those that held the torch to take a moment to wish for peace, reflect on peace or offer a message for peace.

The North American relay began in April in New York City on an over 11.000-mile journey across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The international team of Peace Runners will reach Ottawa on July 25th, 2018 and the relay will conclude in New York in August.
