I first learned about CARE in 2020. At that time, I was surprised to learn that post-war Japan had received assistance from CARE. Japan is at peace today, but there are many people around the world who have forgotten how to smile because they spend their days with anxiety due to war, conflict, and poverty.
A smile is contagious, isn't it? It has a power to make those around us smile too.
Through the Tokyo Marathon 2024 Charity, why don’t we bring smiles to the faces of refugees, women and children in developing countries who are experiencing difficulties?
And why don’t’ you run the Tokyo Marathon 2024 with a smile on your face?
Let's respond to the voices of support with a smile, a voice, and a wave, and spread the circle of smiles along the road in Tokyo, throughout Japan, and all over the world.

I chose CARE as the recipient since it is consistent with my idea. I also feel like, once I started to communicate with people working for CARE, I was even more firmly believe that this is one of the best choices. Because people here are extremely hopeful and kind. They go the extra miles to make us feel like we are at home. I definitely feel like the money that we donated to this organization is going to be used for good. Wonderful experience for us, and I think it is also good to take name of CARE to our friends who may want to run the marathon.

As I am originally born in Ukraine and living in Europe, I would like to contribute to victims of the war in my home country using this Charity program. This is the first time for me to participate the international major marathon, so it was a wonderful experience. And there are so many things to see in Tokyo. I will definitely return with my family and kids perhaps.
