JSS Challenge 2024

Let’s walk/run together to support JSS operations! (Goal $5,000) 

Sunday June 9, 2024, 10:30-13:00  



We are pleased to announce the 4th annual “JSS Challenge”, a fundraising Walkathon event. 

JSS Challenge started in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Would you like to walk or run together again this year to help JSS operations? 

Continuing from last year, we will have a group walk starting from JCCC (equivalent to 5km) and a virtual walk. Participants joining remotely can walk or run for one hour at their own pace in their preferred location and let us know the distance covered. 

How many kilometers can we walk together? Our goal this year is $5000, aiming to walk 100km in total with everyone! After the walk, we plan to have a social gathering (with light refreshments) at JCCC. As part of the fundraising, we will be selling crafts made by members of the JSS Craft Club.  

To all supporters of JSS activities, those who volunteer or are interested in volunteering, those interested in community work, social work, counseling, welfare-related activities, please feel free to join us. We, the JSS, are looking forward to exchanging information and interacting with everyone at this event, where many staff and board directors will also participate. 

The donations we receive will be used as operating funds for JSS. We eagerly await your support and participation so that JSS can continue to provide high-quality services to even more people.
