Hi! We’re Archer and Juno and over the Winter Break, we’ll be attempting (with our mum) the Yamathon, an event that requires participants to make their way around the Yamanote line on foot (approximately 42kms), stopping at each of the thirty (or is it 29?) stations, to raise funds for and awareness of the Yokohama Children’s Hospice Project.

When we lived in Sydney, we had a family friend, Amity, who died of an inoperable brain tumour in January 2018. She was 6 years old. That same year, two days after Archer’s 9th birthday, he and our dad did a 10km charity run in Amity’s memory to raise money for research into children’s cancer. It made us sad to learn that there are life-limiting conditions affecting children. So this event is important to us.

We know it’s a really big challenge but we’re looking forward to the sightseeing around Tokyo, possibly some souvenir collecting, and the feeling of finally crossing the finish line at the end of the day. We think this will teach us a lot about ourselves, how committed we are, and how far we are willing to go to keep pushing forward.

To prepare, we’re going to plan our route very carefully and set goals and milestones along the way. Juno has suggested we wear very heavy clothing. Our mother thinks this is a crazy idea. Archer suggested we eat lots of fast food and put on lots of weight so that then we can burn it all off on the day. Our mother told us this is even crazier. As you can see, we’re already on our way to success!

We hope you'll join us in supporting the very important work that the doctors, nurses, and other carers are doing to help kids who need end-of-life care, and their families. We'll let you know how we go!

PS - our team name was Juno's idea.
