The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run arrived in Swift Current on July 10. The peace runners started their North American tour in New York on April 11. The torch relay is visiting communities in the United States, Mexico and Canada to promote a more peaceful world. The tour will reach Ottawa on Aug. 4 and the North American leg of this global peace run will finish in New York on Aug. 15. Activities during their stop in Swift Current included yoga in Riverdene Park, a torch passing ceremony where participants could make a wish or prayer for peace and a torch run along the Chinook Parkway to Riverside Park, where children from the City of Swift Current's Parks and Play Summer Program participated in a peace run ceremony.
