  • Quote: Mr. Allan Robertson, Chief of the UN’s Commercial Management Service

Upon the conclusion of the ever-popular Fun Runs held on Friday and Sunday, 20 and 22  May, sponsored by the Meditation Group, Mr. Allan Robertson, Chief of the UN’s Commercial Management Service  sent a letter of appreciation  which said, in part:

“To most of us, these races  mean many things as was evidenced  by the large turn out  despite the inclement weather.  They give us an opportunity  of knowing the Sri Chinmoy Group work in Community Service and how it relates  to the ideals of the United Nations, of meeting  some of our colleagues in a  most casual and friendly  manner, and of having fun and  knowing that we can achieve something athletically.”

“To UNICEF may 20th runners –  We are proud of all of you for winning for UNICEF the first place trophy for Participation! Congratulations and thanks!. (signed) Jim Grant
