Mother’s Day 5K Walk for Peace
May 8 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm$35
Kicking off Hands of Peace “20 Years Planting Peace” Benefit Weeks, the 5K Mother’s Day Walk for Peace honors the vision of Juliet Ward Howe, who called for a Mother’s Day dedicated to peace in honor of mothers who lost their sons and husbands during the U.S. Civil War. Howe urged mothers around the world to lead their countries to work for peace “in the name of womanhood and of humanity.”
Invite your moms, children and friends — you can also create teams and raise sponsorships. Can’t do it that day? That’s ok! You can walk anywhere in the world from May 9-22. All walk participants get a commemorative “20 Year” Walk for Peace T-shirt.
