Organizers realized that not every resident can finish a 150km bike ride, so this year they added a 75 km bike race, 10 km run, and a 5 km walk. Tour of the Peace is in its third year and has raised a grand total of $38,000 for the foundation.

To register for the Tour of the Peace visit their website. Registration ends July 23rd.
