Future Dream Achievement is very pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Nippon IT Charity Relay Race. This year's will be held on October 2nd on the Tama Marathon Course at the Furuichiba Track and Field Stadium in Kawasaki.
As with last years event, particpants from all ages and backgrounds are welcome (being in the IT sector is not a requirement) and fun runners as well as more serious competitors can join in.
Last years event saw over 500 runners take part and raised over 2 million yen to provide assistance to people with or recovering from depression and acute socially-withdrawn people in order to train, find employment and return to regular lives.
This year, in light of the tragic events that occurred in Tohoku in March, half of the proceeds will be donated via the Nippon Foundation to organizations participating in the earthquake and tsunami relief efforts. The remaining proceeds will go to FDA to continue its hard work to provide employment support and opportunities to people with employment barriers.
As well as the race, there will be a musical, a fancy dress competition, a charity raffle and a range of fresh food, fruit and vegetable stalls.
Entry costs 3,000yen per person or 15,000yen per team. If you don't have a team but want to run, let me know at email@example.com and we will match you up with a team.

We are also looking for volunteers and sponsors to help at the event. Again, please contact me at the above email if you think you can help.
