2017 Race of Heroes: Run for Karuna-Shechen!

Course des Héros/Race of Heroes takes place annually in Paris, France to benefit various charities.

Some heroes apply their “compassion in action” by running (or walking) to support the projects of Karuna-Shechen. Since 2015, they have raised over $22,000 by collecting pledges from friends and family and running the race of heroes.

Everyday Heroes!

Catherine Kokoreff explains why she participates on our behalf: “By making a donation to Karuna-Shechen I feel as if I have sent the message to the world that we are linked together.”

And, from Alexandra de Nazelle: “I discovered Karuna-Shechen through Matthieu Ricard. It reflects the values that are important to me: kindness, altruism, and compassion. I admire its work to preserve the environment and to educate women and children in remote regions of the world.”

You can also participate! If you are going to be in Paris in June, please consider joining the race in support of Karuna-Shechen. Sign up here! Or, send a donation in honor of the participants.

Other ways to get involved: Run in or create a local race in support of our programs, or let us know other ideas to help.

Thank you! Your active participation is crucial for the life of our programs.
