NEW CANAAN, Conn. — Nearly 300 runners from the New York metropolitan area participated in the Sri Chinmoy Ten Mile Run Dec. 11 in honour of UNICEF’s 31st anniversary.

Winner of the race, Dr. Norb Sanders, said: “In over 20 years of running, I think this has been one of the most inspiring running experiences that I've ever had.”

Sri Chinmoy, who awarded him the UNICEF cup, also gave the doctor an extra prize — a watch — because of the cheerful and devoted consciousness he had while running.

This watch, the Master said, “symbolically tells that your time has pleased us, perhaps far beyond your own imagination.”
