What a beautiful autumn morning it was on November 16 for the seventh annual walkathon to benefit Nishimachi’s Outreach Scholarship Program. With the completed National Stadium standing tall in the background, 327 participants walked or ran around Meiji Jingu Gaien, sporting the blue t-shirts designed by our very own first-grader Ichiko. Head of School Karen O’Neill’s dog, Suki, even joined in on the fun as students, parents, alumni and friends made multiple laps around Jingu Gaien for a worthy cause. Many thanks go to the sponsors, volunteers, and participants whose support makes this event materialize every year, and most importantly helps fund the Outreach Scholarship program to diversify our student body. We raised over one million yen this year! See you at next year’s walkathon on November 21, 2020!
