Peace Road 2018 Comes to Peru

Lima, Peru—On July 22, 2018, UPF-Peru successfully completed this year’s Peace Road project. In coordination with the ISTP Carlos Cueto Fernandini, a technological institute, and its director, Mr. Alejandrino Ramirez Castello, UPF-Peru brought together over 500 students who participated in a 10K marathon for peace. With support from the teachers of the institute, the local security team and the police, the marathon took place on one of the main roads in the district of Comas, Lima. The runner who finished first led the race from start to finish, ending his race with a gap of at least one kilometer between himself and the nearest competitor.

The closing ceremony included awards for the first-place man, the first-place woman and the first-place teacher that were presented by Dr. Trevor Jones, president of UPF-Peru, who spoke about the value of the International Peace Road and its presence in more than 120 nations. Mr. Jaime Fernandez, secretary general of UPF-Peru, spoke about the need to construct good families as a foundation for world peace. Dr. Ramirez thanked UPF for its support and also the other co-sponsors of the event, which included the mayor of Comas and various businesses that had donated water for the runners and other items. At the conclusion of the event, participants were given the opportunity to sign the Peace Road 2018 banner, emblazoned with the slogan “Connecting the World With Peace.”

Dr. Jones and Mr. Fernandez had visited the institute a few weeks before the and spoke to two groups of students, with around 700 in each group. They encouraged the students to participate in the event and to also learn more about the vision and mission of UPF.
