Running for a good cause

IMG_1956The 14th annual ASIJ Community Fun Run was held on Thursday, October 25 after being postponed from the 23rd due to rain. The event included over 200 participants—students from all divisions, teachers and families. The run took everybody from ASIJ’s Main Field into beautiful Nogawa Park and back. We raised over 75,000 yen for the American Cooperative School in Tunis thanks to the generosity of the participants. This will help them rebuild their campus after it was destroyed during a demonstration in the political turmoil. Special thanks to Coca-Cola Co. for sponsoring the Fun Run with commemorative shirts and cold drinks for everyone, and thanks to the Center for School-Community Partnership and Athletics Offices for their continued support. The Fun Run is proud to bring people together to celebrate fitness, a sense of community, and to raise awareness and money for charity. We hope to see you at the Fun Run next year!
