WHAT IS THE SILENT HEROES TOUR
The SILENT HEROES TOUR is the name of the 5,600 km solo kayak tour from Oslo - Athens starting 1 April, 2017 by Mark Fuhrmann, founder of THE PIECE PRIZE.
Together with an international school or an organisation, THE PIECE PRIZE will find and contribute to a local SILENT HERO, a person actively engaged in strengthening their own community or city with acts of kindness and caring.
Cities selected for the first-half of the total tour include: Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Bremen, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Brussels and Paris.
No one can fight poverty, famine, war or global warming alone. But if many individuals take action locally, we create a climate where these issues can be resolved – one act at a time.
I CAN DO THINGS YOU CANNOT,
YOU CAN DO THINGS I CANNOT;
TOGETHER WE CAN DO GREAT THINGS.

Peace begins, first and foremost, to see humanity as a family. Family members belong to each other in the good or bad. I do not categorise my children by their achievements, failures or choices. I see them as individuals: different, unique and worthwhile. I encourage them to share my values of tolerance, belief, and acceptance. We are a family.
