5:00 pm | 5 K Walk for Peace | Hermann Park
6:00 pm | Candle Lighting Ceremony
Join the Unity Peacemakers as we participate in the annual 1000 Lights for Peace event, sponsored by the Gandhi Library. Our very own Rev. Michael Gott will be the keynote speaker this year! The event begins at 5:00 pm with a 5k Walk for Peace at Miller Outdoor Theatre, including an international cultural program with participants representing a broad cross-section of nationalities. The finale and highlight of the evening is a candle lighting ceremony where all present have the opportunity to light a candle representing their pledge for peace.
The walk is optional; you may register for it on the day of the event or in advance at the Gandhi Library website http://www.gandhilibrary.org/. Suggested donation for participating in the walk is $20, $10 for students. Free t-shirt with advance registration.
