Human Race 300Join Mahakaruna’s Human Race Team as we walk for peace and support our meditation center!   

On Saturday, May 6, 2017, Mahakaruna Kadampa Buddhist Center will participate in the Sonoma County Human Race. People visit Mahakaruna seeking tools to reduce their stress, increase their happiness, and transform their lives. We are a vital resource and refuge of peace and support in the community. We offer meditation classes, series classes, study programs, day courses, and retreats. Buddhist wisdom is sound, practical advice from which we can reap countless benefits when we incorporate it into our daily life. Mahakaruna is an excellent resource for these teachings and is suitable for anyone interested in learning more about Buddhism. We are a non-profit, run solely by volunteers. We seek your support so we can continue to be a refuge of peace and source of practical wisdom for the people of Sonoma County. Please consider a donation of $21, $37, $108 or any amount you wish!

You might be asking, “What is the Human Race?” The Human Race is a nationwide community fundraising event for nonprofit organizations. In Sonoma County, it’s the largest collaborative fundraising event and the largest Human Race in the nation! It has been one of the most successful fundraisers for local nonprofits for over 35 years and it continues to grow. In 2016 the Human Race raised nearly $600,000 for local charities.

All donations are tax deductible. Help make a difference in the community by donating $21 to $37, $108 (or more). And if you know anyone who would be interested in making a donation, please send them a link to my page. That would be much appreciated!
