In light of recent violent events documented all around the world, a group of concerned young professionals have united to form the No-To-War Yes-To-Peace Foundation. These young professionals felt quite bothered by news of violence that has affected innocent lives in different areas around the world. Moved by compassion, they decided to organize themselves and attempt to help alleviate some of the suffering caused by war through their foundation. The spokesperson for the foundation, Mr. Michael Pearce, was quoted as saying, “This is our own little way of trying to promote world peace, stop violence, and ease some of the suffering that war brings. We believe that each one of us has a role to play in bringing peace in our world. We hope that through our foundation’s efforts, less people will have to endure the suffering caused by war and other concerned citizens will be given a chance to help in their own way.”
The foundation will hold several fund-raising activities in the coming weeks wherein the proceeds will be used to help the innocent victims of war such as women and young children. Funds will be used to provide food, clothing, and shelter to key areas that have been ravaged by war.
Their first activity will be a Run For Peace Marathon that will be held on October 20th in Seattle. This marathon will be open to both amateur and professional runners and will include several categories, namely, the 3K, the 5K, and the 10K run. The No-To-War Yes-To-Peace Foundation will also be holding a series of fund-raising seminars focusing on the different workouts that are available to people nowadays. This is in recognition of the growing interest in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The officials of the foundation revealed that they believe that more people will be likely to attend a fundraising event if they will be given a chance to learn more about different workouts that can help them achieve a healthier body. The seminars will feature a p90x review among others.
Aside from the different workouts, the seminars will also feature several lectures regarding healthy eating. Some of the recipes that will be featured may be found on this website.
