Peace Walkers began their walk in Corvallis, Oregon on July 30. Their Walk will end on August 12 when they gather at the Trident submarine base near Poulsbo, Washington.

They walk to bring attention to the horrors of nuclear war and to focus on a peaceful world.

Our local group interrupted the main walk to do a shorter walk of ten miles on Sunday, August 6.

They started in Kenmore and walked to Seattle to join the “Hiroshima to Hope” lantern floating event at Green Lake in the evening.

They will return to the Tacoma area to resume their main walk to the Trident base.
