CTC issues condolences over the tragic death of Jigme Norbu

February 15, 2011

The Canada Tibet Committee is shocked and grieved to learn of the tragic death of Jigme Norbu who died last night after being hit by a vehicle in Florida during the West Palm Beach leg of his Walk for Tibet.
 
Jigme (son of Takster Rinpoche and nephew of His Holiness the Dalai Lama) had completed over 21 walks and bike rides for Tibet across the United States, Canada and overseas.
 
Most recently, Jigme completed a December 2010 walk in Taiwan and in October 2010 had completed a walk from Indianapolis to Toronto of over 550 miles.
 
Our deep-felt condolences go to his family.
