Stuff About Me:

Dear family and friends,

Happy New Year!   (日本語は後に続きます)

I am writing to ask for your support for my fundraising goal for The Martin Richard Foundation at the 122nd Boston Marathon this coming April.

My new year's resolution in 2009 was "running a marathon in my 40s", and I started running just a few blocks in the neighborhood on the first day.  I had managed to run a bit longer the following days and finally completed my first marathon in 2011 (yay!), then qualified for the Boston Marathon in 2017 after running 10 marathons.

It was extremely exciting and a great honor to run my first Boston Marathon last year.  I'm fortunate to be able to run the marathon again this year, and I would very much like to do more this time.

I learned about the Martin Richard Foundation when I watched the documentary film of Boston Marathon.  An 8-year old Martin was one of the four victims of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, and his parents created the Foundation in honor of him.

His message  "No more hurting people.  Peace"  remains in my heart deeply, and I decided to run as a member of "Team MR8" this year.   As a team runner, my responsibilities include spreading Martin’s message and raising $2,500 to support various programs especially for young people.

Thank you very much for your kind consideration, and I hope you can join me to make a difference. 

I will do my best running the 122nd Boston Marathon (April 16).  Wish me luck!

Warmest regards,


Choose Kindness. Build Bridges. Do More.




今日は第122回ボストンマラソンでの Mark Richard Foundation へのサポート(寄付)をお願いしたく、メールを送信しています。





Mark Richard Foundation を知ったのは、ボストン・マラソンのドキュメンタリー映画でした。マーク・リチャード君(当時8歳)は2013年に起きたボストンマラソン・爆破事件の被害者の一人です。彼の死後、マーク君の平和を愛する遺志を継いでご両親がFoundation を立ち上げました。映画を観た後も、彼が残したシンプルなメッセージ  "No more hurting people.  Peace" (これ以上、人々を傷つけないで。ピース)がずっと心の奥底に残っていて、『チームMR8』のメンバーとして今年のボストンマラソンに参加することに決めました。
