U.S. members of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team will join local participants in running a symbolic mile-long segment of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run '91 at Genesee Valley Park. The team is an international, non-profit running organization of runners and other athletes who encourage personal growth and promote world harmony through sports. At the park, off Elm wood SPECTACULAR AND LOEWS WEBSTER 3190 IMPIII BOUltVARD 671-6900 7:15 10:00 2:00 4:45 7:30 10:15 1-30 4:15 7:00 9-45 12:20 o v Like world-class runners Yiannis Kouros, left, and Rob DeCastella, you can carry a torch for peace. Avenue, local participants can run the whole distance or carry the flaming torch a few yards along a measured and permanently marked mile-long running course and walking trail called the Peace Mile. The path, dedicated to physical fitness and world peace, will be identified by a plaque that will be unveiled Friday. "For those who want to walk, we'll be walking with the torch and we'll pass it to each person and then well have a one-mile run for people who want to run," says local organizer Georgina Sosa. "Everybody can carry the torch children, adults this is for the whole world." There's no fee to participate. Instead of raising money, the goal of the biennial relay event which was started in 1987 is to shed light on how easy it is for people from different parts of the world to work together in creating a unified globe. Peace Run '91 is organized by members of the Marathon Team, which was founded in 1976 by Sri Chinmoy, a native of India. The sports philosopher, lecturer and ambassador of peace has dedicated his life to the pursuit of world harmony, Sosa says. The organization promotes the Olympic ideal of creating world peace through physical fitness and puts on triathlon and ultra-marathon championships and more than 500 other sporting events around the world. During the last two peace runs, participants from all over the globe, including political leaders and celebrities such as Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Rev. Jesse Jackson helped pass the symbolic flame across seven continents, through 70 nations and all 50 U.S. states. This year's Peace Run began April 20 in New York City and will cover 25,000 miles. By the time it reaches Rochester via Honolulu, Hawaii and Buffalo, the torch will have covered 5,500 miles and lit up almost every state. The four-month-long international event wraps up in Manhattan after a trip through the New England states. "In many cities they are running on the streets and the roads to get people inspired all over the world," says Sosa. "There are three or four (Sri Chinmoy runners) who are doing the whole U.S." Other runners will change every few weeks and meet at certain places and "go on so they can do the whole United States." Before the Peace Mile event begins in Genesee Valley Park, City Council members Tim 0. Mains and Maxine Childress Brown, Monroe County legislator Joanne D. Van Zandt, and other officials will help dedicate the path and a Peace Tree at a ceremony beginning at noon (enter at Moore Road entrance flt. ElmwnnH Avenue turn rioKt at the first street and follow the signs). Another Peace Tree was planted in Manhattan Square Park in 1989. Since 1987, more than seventy Peace Miles have been mapped out around the world, but the one in Genesee Valley Park is the first for Rochester. "It is a beautiful place with beautiful trees for people to enjoy," says Sosa. Sosa, a member of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Marathon Team, helped arrange different events in Miami before moving to Rochester three years ago. In 1989, she worked on Mexico's Peace Run and coordinated the run in Rochester. This year, she helped with letter-writing campaigns for Peace Runs through Mexico and Argentina and for Venezuela's relay, which ends July 5. When the Rochester event is over, So-sa's job won't be done; she still has to help get the torch through the entire island of Puerto Rico from Aug. 10 to Aug. 17. The Peace Run '91 ends Aug. 29. The Venezuela native struggled for words to describe her contributions to the worldwide peace effort and her hopes for Sunday's race. "What I am doing comes from my heart. Let's welcome the runners and show them that Rochester cares." For more information on Peace Run '91, call 248-2801. Football golfer Mike Quick, wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles football team will be a special guest golfer at the "Big BrothersBig Sisters 2nd Annual Golf Classic" on Monday. The tournament will be at Midvale Golf & Country Club, 2387 Baird Road, Penfield, beginning at 1 p.m. The scramble format is open to individuals and foursomes. Tournament proceeds benefit the Big BrothersBig Sisters mentor program; $125 includes lunch, dinner, greens fees and a cart. Register by calling 454-2292; TDD 454-6329. Have news for Recreation?
