The Peace Run
By Shalini Crasta
Mumbai, Feb. 17. Students from 16 different Mumbai-based schools participated in 'The Peace Run', a brainchild of Principal, Father Godfrey D'sa, to commemorate the Centenary Year of St. Joseph's High School, Wadala which was held on February 11.
Youth from various institutions joined forces for the cause of Peace in their neighbourhoods, the city, the state, the country and the world. The aim was to convey to people that even the future generation, along with the present generation, wants peace and harmony between all mankind.

The run was flagged, by Chief Guest Mir Ranjan Negi, a former India hockey goalkeeper and coach of the Indian team, at 6.30 am from Five Gardens in Matunga. The runners then proceeded to Dr Antonio D'Silva School (Dadar), from there to Victory School (Mahim), the next stop was Shivaji Park from Cadel Road, then on to Vaidya Gardens, Dadar (E), to Shishuvan School via Bhaudaji Road, via four roads to SIWS School (Matunga) and from there to the final destination at St. Joseph's High School, Wadala.

The students ran with great enthusiasm and vigour. The organisers charted the course around seven holding points akin to pit stops. Students from three schools each would run from one holding point to the next. They would then hand over the torch to the other runners. Some former and present students alongside senior staff kept up the tempo by playing live music.  

At the closing ceremony Father D'Sa addressed the gathering and thanked the chief guest for his presence. Father D'Sa also thanked the Pinkathon team who accompanied the students from the starting point through to the end. Negi then lauded the organisers for ideating such a noble event. He joined Father Rosario Vaz and 10 students from St. Joseph's school to release 12 doves as a mark of peace.
