JSS Challenge 2021:Virtual Charity Walk

Please support the Virtual Charity Walk
to raise funds for Japanese Social Services’ operating costs

SUN, JUNE 13, 2021 10AM~

Goal :$5000  JSS needs your help under the continuing financial hardship


Thank you to all who have supported Japanese Social Services and our “Toronto Challenge” over the past years. This year, the City of Toronto who organizes the Toronto Challenge have advised us that the event will not be held due to the coronavirus.

So, for 2021 Japanese Social Services has decided to hold our own Fundraising Virtual Walk/Run instead! We will not be walking or running arm-in-arm this year but please walk or run at a location of your choosing, with us in your hearts. And support JSS so we can continue to provide our much-needed services to as many in our community as possible.

Rather than fixing a distance for this event, we will walk or run for a fixed time of ONE HOUR. Let’s see how much distance we can all cover in that time!

We will meet by ZOOM before the walk to lift our spirits, then meet again on ZOOM after to celebrate and close our event. Many of the staff and Board members of JSS, including both our counsellors, Kuge-san and Mifune-san will participate.
