Since 2015, IRIS has held an event each year to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace. This year, the Peace Day 5K and International Festival will be held at the Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines. The day will include a 5K Run/Walk to help promote peace and an 'International Festival' with different games and activities for people of all ages.
The Peace Day 5K run/walk is part of the IRIS International Festival in recognition of the UN International Day of Peace. In addition to the "Peace Day 5K" run/walk, the day will include the IRIS Global Games.
All runners or sponsors will receive a custom RAYGUN t-shirt! All profit from event funds the IRIS Global Grants and Scholarships which helps us fund community projects and continued studies for IRIS alumni around the world!
