We’re proud to sponsor this year’s CISV Springfield Setting the Pace for Peace Race, which is scheduled for April 2 in Forest Park.
The 5K run and family fun walk, set for 9 a.m., helps support the Children’s International Summer Villages’ mission of educating and inspiring action for a more just and peaceful world.

CISV is a nonprofit, non-political, independent volunteer organization that offers children and adults the opportunity to travel and make new friendships worldwide while learning to understand and appreciate different cultures. The philosophy of CISV is a commitment to know countries through close friends rather than as abstract places on a map and to accept others without prejudice or stereotypes.
Every summer, CISV brings together children and young adults from all over the world to foster international understanding and friendships in the hope of achieving peaceful solutions to worldwide problems.
