I'm going to be climbing Tokyo Tower to raise funds for TELL, a non-profit organization providing counseling services and mental health care to Japan's international community. TELL has the goal of providing a 24-hour support Life Line by the year 2019, and will be using the funds raised by this event toward that purpose. September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day, and a great time to be fighting the stigma against seeking mental health care and raising awareness for TELL its cause here in Japan. Much more information can be found on TELL's website and Facebook page. For my own individual climb, I am excited and nervous! I have never attempted a timed climb like this before, but I'll do my best! I know from experience that the view from Tokyo Tower is pretty amazing, and I'm excited for this rare chance to actually take the stairs up. If you donate to this cause through my fundraising campaign, I will personally thank you, hopefully in a video I plan to take from the observation deck. Please look forward to it! Thank you!
