Walk for Tohoku (in Ohori Park 4/24)

Join us on April 24, 2011, at Walk for Tohoku to raise and maintain awareness of the post-tsunami devastation and the relief and rebuilding efforts, and to provide the people of Tohoku with comfort, strength and hope while they go through this very difficult time.

Attendance is FREE, however, we urge you to make your donations directly to your preferred charities as soon as possible.

Be sure to GET YOUR COMMEMORATIVE RIBBON from one of our organization committee members or volunteers. Committee members and volunteers will be wearing “Walk for Tohoku” name tags.

Don’t forget to BRING YOUR CAMERAS so you can upload your photos to our digital photo album where we will create a visual/sound production of the Walk for the people of Tohoku to view. More information on this will be provided at the Walk event.

SIGN YOUR MESSAGES OF HOPE to the people of Tohoku on our large canvas sheet at the event. It will then be on display at various locations throughout Fukuoka where more people will sign their messages, and it will finally be brought to Tohoku for the people to receive.

Walk for Tohoku is now receiving global attention in Japan, Canada, the United States, and Brazil. Let’s come together as a community on April 24th to ensure that the world does not forget about the people of Tohoku.

Walk begins at 9:00 am in front of Ohori Park Starbucks, and ends at 4:00 pm at the same location. Come any time and walk for as long as you like. If you join us after 9:00 am, please look for the walkers wearing red and white ribbons on their shirts (and committee members wearing Walk for Tohoku ID cards).
