£991raised of £4,000 target by 22 supporters

Weʼre raising £4,000 to Mirai no Mori an organization that creates outdoor programs for abused, neglected, and orphaned youths in Japan.

Yamagata, Yamagata Prefecture, Japan

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


We are aiming to raise funds to enable Mirai No Mori to help underprivileged children experience outdoor activities that many of us take for granted. More details on Mirai No Mori can be found on their homepage :

How are we going to do this?
Joe Pournovin, Andrew Farmer and me are attempting 3 separate endurance challenges as a team.
May 12th 2018 Yamathon - Walk around the Tokyo Yamanote line (42km) in less than 14 hours - Complete (11 hours)
August 4th Sea To Summit - From the coast of Japan to the top of Fuji (53km ascending 3,776m)
September 21-24 Coast to Coast from the west of Japan to the East (165km)

Please help motivate us by donating to this worthy cause.

Thank you,

Mark, Andrew and Joe.

    Yes! On Saturday we conquered Sea to Summit starting in 32C at the coast and 4C at the summit. It’s probably the hardest thing I have done. Thanks to your generous support it kept us motivated and gave us that extra desire to succeed. A big thank you for your support. It took us 26 hours in total covering 42KM and climbing to 3776m. Now it’s on to Coast To Coast and a walk of 165KM across Japan. Here is a photo showing us at the top of Mt. Fuji.

    Very impressive and slightly mad! I would expect nothing different.
