2023 Run For The Cure Walk For Life

We are thrilled to be teaming up with Japan’s leading breast cancer foundation, Run For The Cure Walk For Life (RFTC), for our annual Family and Friends Fun Run again this year. Please feel free to invite your friends and family to join the run.

All funds raised will go directly to the charity. Last year, we raised just shy of ¥300,000 for this very important cause. The TFC matched our contributions making TIS’s donation ¥600,000! Let’s see if we can reach the same goal this year or even more!

When & Where:

Saturday, November 18, 2023 at 9:30am around the Imperial Palace

How to Register:

To register, please sign up on RFTC’s website directly.

Registration closes on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 – please be sure to register on time.

As we will not be running as part of the large event organized by RFTC, we need TIS families to register under the “virtual” category as “individuals.”

(The “REGISTER” button above will take you directly there)

  • When you choose your “Participating Event,” please choose one of the three “online” options.
  • In the Message box, please write “TIS” so that our team contribution can be combined.
  • Please add each participant from your family (NB: you can add 1 adult + 1 child registration to your cart at a time).

Children below 5 are free, but if you would like a t-shirt for your child, please select the 6-12 age group. Please note that t-shirts are adult sizes. T-shirts will be sent to the school, and we will send them home with your child. We will be communicating more on the timing closer to the date.

Meeting Point & Route:
