Hi, my name is Takashi “TAKE” Takekawa, President and CEO of Asahi Net International, Inc., the New York base of the Japanese internet service provider ASAHI Net, and an enthusiastic runner who completed full marathon for 5 times and half marathon for 5 times in New York, Boston, London, and Tokyo.
I met my great friend Avi Kremer as a section mate when I was in a first year at Harvard Business School (HBS), and soon, got to hear the news from him that he was diagnosed with ALS. I was so so shocked, but then was very impressed and encouraged by Avi’s passion, strong intention, and dedication to complete his study at HBS, and to keep fighting against ALS. Since then, I myself have gotten involved his effort to fight against ALS, mainly through the initiatives taken by Avi himself and Prize4Life.
Last year, I completed NY marathon as a member of the Team ALS: Running 4 a Cure! at ALS Association Greater New York. This year, having heard from Avi about the new team Prize4Life, I instantly decided to join the team, and have been working even harder to complete the full marathon (of course!) and to keep fighting against ALS.
Your generous support to myself and to the Team Prize4Life will be greatly appreciated. I hereby promise to work hard, and run even harder to complete the full marathon with all your names in my mind.
Thank you very very much!!!
