The annual ACCJ/NIS Walkathon is a terrific community event - a day of good food, friendship (and some walking!) in the park every Spring. However, the Walkathon is also a major outreach event for our school community, connecting NIS and our students with a multitude of charitable and non-profit organizations supporting those in need in Nagoya. From service dogs to HIV, from homelessness to foster homes for children - the Walkathon enables NIS students to engage with and learn from true role models in our community. I was incredibly proud of our Grade 10 students who organized and ran such a wonderful awards ceremony this week at which ¥6 million were distributed from the ACCJ Walkathon Organizing Committee. Thank you to all of you who supported the walkathon this past year.
