USA 23 August: NYC Ceremony - Pre event Alert


 Join the Harmony Run 23 August in NYC

At 1.00 pm on Monday, 23 August  at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, just a block away from the United Nations you can join with numerous UN Ambassadors, members of the diplomatic community and World Harmony Run Coordinators from over 100 nations to celebrate the finish of the 50 state US relay.

Founded two decades ago by the spiritual leader and world harmony visionary Sri Chinmoy to promote international understanding, the World Harmony Run is now the world's longest global relay. The run is a non-profit event organized entirely by volunteers which simply strives to encourage goodwill among peoples of all nations 

Sing for Hope Donor Artists Amy Justman and Brian Neff will perform as will the New York City Housing Authority Youth Chorus, led by Larry Matthew.

"What Sing for Hope does is wonderfully simple. It maintains a roster of compassionate, world-class artists who donate time and talent to the humanitarian causes that inspire them."
- Dr. Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Sing for Hope Board Member. To learn more, please visit www.singforhope.org

Continuation in Europe, Asia, Australasia and Southern Africa 

Please join us to celebrate this wonderfully rich and diverse coming together of peoples and cultures that has taken place so far this year around the world. In addition to marking the completion of the USA's 48 continental states relay, it will also draw attention to the continuation of runs in other regions of the world. Come along to give the European and Asian teams encouragement for their finish in Moscow on Sept 27 and launching the Australasian run. The Southern Africa run begins in October.
