TELL Tokyo Tower Climb

7:30am – 11:00am

A chance to climb one of Tokyo’s more iconic structures while raising awareness around mental health issues, the TELL Tokyo Tower Climb 2020 is an event created to (roughly) coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day. As an NPO that has championed mental wellbeing in Japan for 45 years, TELL is proud to step up for this life affirming cause. Each individual who joins TELL’s Tokyo Tower Climb helps raise awareness toward suicide prevention and funds for TELL’s Lifeline, a critical crisis intervention resource for Japan’s international and English speaking community

Unlike previous years, the 2020 Tower Climb will span over 2 days. Corporates, school teams and community teams will compete on September 12th, while individuals will climb the stairs on September 13th. TELL is spreading the event over two days to ensure that social distancing and other safety precautions are maintained and to avoid crowding at the bottom and top. There will be temperature checks and masks/PPE as well.
