Buddhist monks expand peace walk to Kennewick

Herald staffJuly 25, 2013 

— Buddhist monks are expanding their annual interfaith peace walk to include a segment in Kennewick as well as Richland.

Monks of the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist Temple on Bainbridge Island will be in the Tri-Cities on July 30 for a prayer walk for abolition of nuclear weapons.

The five-mile Kennewick segment will start at 9:40 a.m. at the Rite Aid on Highway 395 and Kennewick Avenue and proceed on Clearwater Avenue to Columbia Center Boulevard. It will end at Target.

The six-mile Richland segment will begin at 1 p.m. with a brief ceremony in John Dam Plaza. It will proceed north on George Washington Way to the 300 Area gate of the Hanford nuclear reservation.

The walk is open to the public. A support vehicle will provide rides for those who need a lift midwalk.
