History of the Walkathon

History of the Walkathon

Over 25 years of helping local charities

The Chubu Walkathon and International Charity Festival (formerly the Nagoya Walkathon and International Charity Festival), is a charity event organized by the international community in Central Japan. The annual event started in 1991 in Nagoya, Japan by members of the then American Business Community of Nagoya (ABCN). In the year 2000, the ABCN merged with the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) and became that organization's Chubu Chapter.

The event has continued annually and is today organized by the ACCJ Chubu Chapter and Nagoya International School (NIS).

The event has grown over the years and raises in excess of 7 million yen per year ($70,000 USD) for the benefit of local charities. In 2012, the Walkathon reached a major milestone having achieved a lifetime total of raising in excess of 100 million yen ($1 million) since its inception.
