In 2011 we were able to raise 5,000,000yen for the Eastern Japan Disaster Relief Fund and 7,700,000 yen for 26 Charities in the Chubu Area. Over the past 20 years, we have raised over 91,300,000 yen in total. Our Big Goal this year is to reach the 100 Million Yen mark in total monies raised in 21 years.
This year, the Walkathon is celebrating 21 Years of Giving Back to the Chubu Community.
This year we have a target of 8million yen that we want to raise to help orphans, victims of child abuse, the physically or emotionally challenged and people coping with illnesses such as HIV/Aids and cancer. Also we want to give 10% of this money raised to a charity organization helping people in the Tohoku area. While it is always a pleasure to help so many members of our community, every year the number of those who need our help increases. Together, we can strive to make an even bigger difference in people’s lives this year, and bring smiles to more faces than ever before.
