The Mission
Reza Baluchi has a dream to run thru all 194 recognized countries in the world to inspire us and unite us as a people. His dream is to share the lives of people around the world with complete transparency. He will broadcast the experience with a live camera and create a film. Stories of the human spirit and culture shall be told thru the eyes of our children as students. When Reza meets with children in our schools he asks that before his departure that we plant a tree together in his honor to remind you that we all come from the same roots. He will also ask for an endorsement from our leaders of each voluntary country in an effort to collaborate efforts for the betterment of all people. Working together for a strong foundation of purpose with transparency we will show the world that anything is possible!
