Resilience Tokyo Marathon 2017

Share This Campaign

About This Cause

On February 26, 2017, I will be running my third Tokyo marathon.

Marathons call upon the runner to have resilience - both mental and physical reserves to draw upon, an ability to bounce back to shape during training and the race itself.

Whilst a marathon has a finish line, recovery from domestic violence and sexual abuse is an ongoing journey.

My work as a coach and facilitator to help women to create and communicate change makes supporting the Japanese NPO Resilience so meaningful for me.

Resilience (特定非営利活動法人レジリエンス), a non-profit organisation established in 2003 in Japan, provides education and support to those who have lived through abusive relationships including domestic violence, child abuse and sexual trauma.

Resilience's goal is to provide opportunities for accessible emotional support in a non-clinical setting. Experiencing domestic violence or any other trauma is devastating, but careful self-reflection of one's experience in a safe environment leads not only to healing, but also to personal growth.

    Today, I transferred 271,880JPY to NPO Resilience's bank account. Thank you to everyone who sponsored the run and also for the opportunity to raise awareness about domestic abuse and sexual violence in Japan. I will launch another sponsored challenge in April where I will really be pushing myself to new limits! You can find more resources at their website: http://resilience.jp Here is the message I received from the founder, Sachi Nakajima: "My heartfelt thank you to everyone who was generous enough to donate to our cause, and to Jennifer who ran the race for us! We have been providing services to those who have been abused in relationships of all kinds (families, schools or work place relationships), since 2003. During that time, the demand for our services has continued to be on the rise. With such a growing need for our work, we have had our share of struggles in continuing to run our non-profit organization. Jennifer's incredibly generous donation will now allow us to keep offering classes and workshops to those in need. With much gratitude, Sachi Nakajima"
