Last month, Play for Peace celebrated the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week, joining a global effort to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence, as well as harmony between all people, regardless of faith. Throughout the week, our clubs had the opportunity to demonstrate and experience the richness of our diversity and show compassion for others.
As October comes to a close, Play for Peace also marks the official end of our Level Up: Race for Humanity fundraising efforts.
