Charity Run & Walk - DAN DAN RUN 2018
Join us on Sunday, May 13th! Charity Run & Walk DAN DAN Run is a fundraising run and walk event to support refugees living in Japan. This is the fifth annual DAN DAN RUN. Last year, about 300 people participated. In addition to the running and walking around the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, we will have some fun events in Hibiya Park. Please join us to have fun and support refugees!
This is a charity event to support refugees who have come to Japan.
Today, due to various civil right violations and wars around the world, many people are being forced to leave their home countries as refugees. Many of them have come to Japan. They have to overcome a lot of difficulties to recover their everyday life they have lost in their home countries: home, family, jobs, and safe and peaceful days. The proceeds of this event will be used to support the first steps of the refugees in Japan.
What is DAN DAN RUN?
The event is managed by the volunteer "DAN DAN RUN committee" and the proceeds of the event will be used to support refugees through Japan Association for Refugees (JAR). This event is named "DAN DAN RUN," from the Japanese word "暖 (dan)" which means "warmness." Because the theme of the first event in February 2014 was "Give the refugees a warm winter, with the warmness of the heart of the participants."

Use of the proceeds
Proceeds of this event will be used for various activities of JAR, such as cost for sheltering, food, visits to the JAR office, medical expense for people without health insurance and other support for refugees. JAR staff also engages in important activities of consulting on applying for asylum, job searching, and other necessities of the life in Japan. Advocating for better institutional and social system for refugees is also an important part of the JAR's activities.
