On July 12, a fundraiser will take place at the World Beat Center to help support runners on the Peace and Dignity Journey, an intercontinental spiritual run that began in Alaska and Tierra del Fuego in May, is passing through hundreds of indigenous communities, and will meet at the Panama Canal in November. The goals of the journey include strengthening and sharing indigenous culture, uniting indigenous peoples, and uniting all peoples -- thereby fulfilling the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor.

Five of the core runners, those who are running the entire route, are from San Diego. One strand of the Northern route will join a feeder run arriving from the Mexico-US border in Balboa Park between the World Beat Center and the Centro Cultural de la Raza on July 23. From there, the runners will proceed along with community members to Chican@ Park for a public welcoming ceremony, arriving shortly after 5pm.

The fundraiser will feature performers who are immersed in or supportive of indigenous culture in the border region, as well as speakers discussing their experiences as runners in past Peace and Dignity Journeys.
