We are really excited at KIWL Towers about the year ahead!
From 3pm on on Friday April 5th, we kick off our 2019 fundraising events by hosting our annual Imperial Palace Walk. Choose one hour from 24 to walk around the Palace perimeter as an individual or in a group of friends or colleagues. Anyone from babies in strollers to grandparents on scooters can enter this low-barrier family event. Y5,000 entry fee includes a much-coveted KIWL t-shirt. Just email telling us which hour you would like to start and how many will participate.
On Saturday April 20th we host our 2nd KIWL Futsal Cup at the Adidas Futsal Park in Kawasaki. A strictly 'for fun' event, 12 teams will battle for supremacy with at least one lady player in the team. Invitations are open to teams, just contact us for more details, firstname.lastname@example.org
In May, we host our annual pub quiz, an ever-popular night for the trivially-minded! No need to get fit, just give back! Watch the website for a date announcement.
Between June 13-16, 45 intrepid cyclists of all ages and abilities will pedal 500kms to raise funds for our chosen charity. The peloton is fully subscribed this year but we still welcome supporters and sponsors to help the riders along.
At some point in September we will host our second rooftop party with live DJ playing relaxing lounge tunes, accompanied by a lovely buffet. For the active and sedentary alike!
On Saturday November 9th, we shall host our third annual Go-Go marathon. This year, we offer 55kms, 21kms, and a 10km fun run along the Arakawa river free of traffic, arriving in Kawagoe at a nearby children's home. If that is not enough, join our crazy KIWL member David Sweet who is attempting '7 Marathons in 7 Days', the first day of which will be the Arakawa leg. Are you game enough to join him?!
Also in November we shall host our 3rd annual Golf Day, date and venue to be confirmed.
To round off the year, join us for our annual Santa cycle ride from Tokyo to Mitake, about 65kms. Dress as Santa, and give presents to kids in a local care home. All abilities welcome but with some cycling experience.
As always, feel free to drop us a line if you want to participate or would like further details.
