5th Anniversary Walkathon 2017
The special 5th Anniversary Rainbow Bridge Walk for the Outreach Scholarship Program was a success again! The weather held out for us, and we had a record number of registrations with over 400 people participating or donating. Special thanks goes to our new sponsors Mercedes-Benz, Santa Fe Relocation Services, and Azabu Gardens/Pembroke and to our perennial sponsors Morgan Stanley, Domino’s Pizza, and Cookie Time.
With our volunteer faculty and staff leading groups over the span of the bridge, families were able to take in the sprawling metropolis of Tokyo on one side and Tokyo Bay as far as the eye could see on the other.
Congratulations to grades 9 and 2T for winning the pizza and cookie party with the highest participation.
Your generosity and enthusiasm for this annual fundraiser has generated an estimated 1.2 million yen to benefit Nishimachi’s Outreach program which provides scholarships to students from various backgrounds who could not otherwise afford to attend. A diverse community enhances learning, widens outlooks, and is immensely important for young students to be exposed to as we prepare them to embark in a global world as thoughtful, engaging and compassionate people, proud to call themselves Nishimachi graduates.
