As October comes to a close, Play for Peace also marks the official end of our Level Up: Race for Humanity fundraising efforts. After seven years of in-person events, we are excited that our first-ever virtual race, which took place last month, raised more than $28.2K and created compassion, connection, and community for all who participated.
Today we have another guest post from Jacob Gries, a freelance writer and avid runner who is joining us for Level Up: Race for Humanity. After completing Community Week, he’s back with another post with his take on finding community in today's world.
During the first week of Level Up: Race for Humanity our global community focused on compassion, challenging ourselves to see the suffering of others and respond with kindness and empathy. This includes mentors Obed from Burundi and Francisco from Mexico who worked with their clubs to find a deeper meaning in compassion.
