On Sunday, September 15, Seeds, Parents, Counselors, and friends will walk across the Memorial Bridge in Augusta to the State House to raise awareness and support for Seeds of Peace and its work in Maine and around the world.
Seeds of Peace needs your help to spread the word and raise awareness for its vital mission – to empower leaders of the next generation with the skills necessary to advance peace!
To walk: set up your own fundraising page and share it with your friends. We hope to walk with you! Select FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN to get started.
Then share your story – why you support Seeds of Peace – on your personal fundraising page. Invite your friends to join you in supporting the organization.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the walk will start at 10. Walkers will meet at the Flatiron Building/Old Cony High School in Augusta.
Special thanks to our transportation sponsor, Custom Coach and Limousine.
About Seeds of Peace:
In the face of some of the world’s most intractable conflicts, Seeds of Peace gives rise to new generations of leaders uniquely inspired and equipped to build lasting peace.
Treaties are negotiated by governments; peace is made by people. Since 1993, Seeds of Peace has set the standard in international peace-building by providing exceptional young people and educators from regions of conflict with an otherwise impossible opportunity to meet their historic enemies face-to-face at our International Camp in Maine.
We build on their extraordinary and critical relationships and understanding through year-round local programs that focus on the core leadership capacities needed to advance peace. There are now over 5,000 Seeds and Educators from 27 countries who prove that solutions exist, peace is possible, and there is reason to have hope for a better future.
