Belarus, Ukraine, Russia

25 June 2011 - reported 21 Aug 2011

WHR Teams from 3 country regions join together at common boarders to celebrate unity. 


Representatives of Harmony Run teams from

 Russia (more),

Ukraine (more)

and Belarus (more).

joined together during an international festival

"Slavic Unity-2011"

Friendship Monument 

It took place on 25 June 2011 at the Friendship Monument of the meeting of the common borders of

  • Russia's Bryansk region,

  • the Chernigov region of Ukraine, and

  • the Gomel region of Belarus.

This year the festival was held by Russia

and organized in the Bryansk region.

The Harmony run has many inspiring moments and activities.

However, some of the most touching are when the torch is passed between countries at boarders or at regional events.

Similarly when the representative of a town or city passes the torch

to representative of a neighbouring location it is quite moving.

 Sports Teams, Schools and Clubs

We have seen on the Harmony Run that when sports teams,

Schools or clubs and other local associations

who may sometimes be competitors

participate or observe the passing of the Harmony torch or similar shared experiences it can often have an immediate effect on those present.

The heart responds.

Something deep within many people longs to feel and recognize this shared sense of oneness.

beyond the various roles we are born into or take on from time to time.

We are able to celebrate our diversity

and the various different artefacts,

languages and

Cultural offerings we have. At the same time we are also able to exchange and share what has inspired us with the wider world family.

We expand in knowledge, awareness and experience.

Our efforts to reach out, participate and accept others offerings, creates opportunities to make new friends.

It can often also deepen our understanding,  acceptance

and connectionswith old ones.

The founder of the run often spoke about "Oneness."

These experiences of coming together at the the local, and regional levels

is surley helping various communities strengthen a culture of Peace for the world.

Thank you to the organizers and participants for the inspiration and example you are providing to many others way beyond your shared boarders.
