I am going to climb Tokyo Tower on Sunday, September 10th, 2017 in support of suicide prevention. There are only 500 timed entries. It won't be easy but I prepared to go all the way to the top! Japan's suicide rate is high among industrialized nations. Suicide among foreigners in Japan is something TELL (Tokyo's English Life Line) has worked to prevent since the 1970s. Personally, I have been touched by suicide through friends and family. If my climb can help those who are considering suicide know they are not alone, the sweat put it out in the training and in the actual climb will be worth it. I dedicate my climb in memory of those I know who committed suicide and more so for those left behind. Please consider making a donation to this important cause and to my climb. Thank you.
