This year we will continue with an in-person event along the Tamagawa River and would love for you to join us.

Time: 10:00

Location: Futakoshinchi by the Tamagawa River

Charities: We will support the following two charities this year. As we will have no overheads, all donations will be divided up between the two charities.

Mirai No Mori in Japan. Mirai No Mori is a not-for-profit organization that creates life-changing outdoor programs for abused, neglected, and orphaned youths in Japan, supporting their growth into happy and successful young adults.

EPIC in Ireland. EPIC advocates for the rights of children and young adults in the care system and aftercare and enables their voice to influence positive change in their own circumstances and the care system.
