Walk for Tibet 2010 Press Release
Walk for Tibet 2010 begins Sunday May 9, 2010 at 10:00am from Indianapolis Indiana Monument Circle and ends over 600 miles later in Minneapolis Minnesota. It will proceed through 3 of the largest Tibetan communities in the midwest: Chicago, Madison, and Minneapolis. Jigme Norbu (son of Taktser Rinpoche Thubten J Norbu and nephew of His Holiness The Dalai Lama) will walk the entire journey. Tenzin Jamyang, ex-President Tibet Alliance of Chicago, will also join and assist along the way. Jigme has completed more than 16 walks and bike rides altogether and have compiled over 4500 miles in the United States and overseas.
Last year in March of 2009, Jigme Norbu completed a walk from Indianapolis to NewYork which was 900 miles for Tibet. Once again Jigme Norbu is dedicating this walk to his father who spent his life advocating Tibet awareness and Tibet Independence as well as the memory of all our brother and sisters who have died in peaceful protest to the brutal suppression of Tibet by communist China for the past 6 decades. Also in dedication to all the victims and lives that were lost and suffering to the families of the recent earthquake trajedy in Tibet.
