|5. Report: ACCJ Pre-Walkathon Event Greater Nagoya Industrial Tour in Gifu|
The American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) and the Nagoya International School (NIS) held the 20th Annual Walkathon and International Charity Festival for 2011 on Sunday, May 22.
The Nagoya Walkathon is the largest international event in Nagoya, and has inspired both Tokyo and Osaka to create similar events. This successful charity event distributed 5.5 million yen last year to local charities.
The ACCJ / NIS Walkathon and International Charity Festival are eagerly anticipating celebrating the 20th year in 2011. The Nagoya Walkathon helps to build bridges between the Japanese and international communities by bringing together over two thousand members of those communities to support the vital work being conducted by local NPOs and charitable organizations, by raising over 5.5 million yen to charities in 2009.
This money is used to support children and those in need in the Chubu Area. In 2009, despite the economic downturn, it has the organizers excited to continue at that venue, and set a goal to raise 8million yen in 2010. 8million yen is on track with the level of funds raised before the economic downturn and we need everyone’s help in reaching this goal, whether you are participating as an individual or as part of an association or company.
Before this huge international event, the Walkathon, took place, Greater Nagoya Initiative members welcome and coordinated the GNI Industrial Tour to introduce the regional attractiveness to the Governors of American Chamber of Commerce in Japan. The ACCJ members visited Shiraki Brewery factory, Great Buddha, and cormorant fishing at the Nagara river.
Shigeri Shiraki, the 7th owner of the Shiraki Brewery factory showed how they advanced their overseas business with their products “Daruma masamune – aged sake” to the U.S and Italy. The ACCJ governors and Chubu members heard the story of how to make the aged-sake. And the ACCJ governors enjoy tasting sake at their shop.
