Sam’s Ride for Peace Ready for Sunday Launch
Sam Winstead, an 86 year old retired farmer and WW II veteran from Person County is trained and ready to lead the 7 day, 360 mile bicycle Ride for Peace from the NC Capital in Raleigh this Sunday morning, bound for Washington DC. Riders and supporters will gather on the south side of the old capital at 7:30am to hear words, songs and prayers for a safe and successful journey before the 8:00am launch.
Earlier this week, Sam received the Torch Bearer Award from the World Harmony Runners, celebrating their 25th Anniversary, with local coordinator Sarbaga Falk, Carrboro Mayor Mark Chilton, and NC Senator Ellie Kinnaird.

Sam’s Ride for Peace will conclude on Saturday, May 5 at Lafayette Park in Washington DC with a 2:00pm ceremony featuring representatives of Veterans For Peace and Peace Action (formerly SANE-Freeze). A one day bus trip will leave Palace Pointe in Roxboro to greet the Riders for Peace and celebrate the anticipation of a World without war.
