Musical Youth Foundation Founder & CEO receives Global Peace Run Torch Bearer Award
Running for peace and harmony since 1987 the Peace Run is one of the world’s largest grassroots movements to bring people together. Runners carry an Olympic style torch to over 100 countries around the world, and each year over one million people hold this torch and pass it on from hand to hand, sharing their hopes for a better world.
As the Peace Run journey across the country and around the world invariably they come into contact with some remarkable people who have inspired their communities, their cities and nations through their own lives and deeds. The presence of the Peace Run and torch creates an opportunity to recognise these remarkable people.
Our Founder & CEO, Chris Maher, was among the select group of awardess of the prestigious Torch Bearer Award in a ceromony in Dublin last Thursday. Congratulations Chris!
