About the Tokyo Tower Climb

TELL has partnered with one of Tokyo’s most iconic structures to offer an exciting challenge on September 8th that ranks with endurance events at some of the world’s most famous buildings and towers (e.g. Empire State Building, Eiffel Tower, Sears Tower).  Last Year’s TELL Tokyo Tower Climb raised over ¥5,000,000 and saw a sold out crowd of 500 people including overseas participants, corporates, schools, families take the challenge to help raise awareness for World Suicide Prevention Day.

September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day and people all around the globe will be walking, marching or running to “take a step” to remove stigmas around mental health.

Come out – by yourself, or form a team – to make a difference by raising money to help us take the TELL Lifeline 24/7. Every step changes lives.

Where will your money go? 

In the midst of these incredibly challenging and unprecedented times brought on by COVID-19, TELL has been working overtime to ensure Japan has critical information and resources available via the website, social media, teletherapy and
theLifeline and Chat.

TELL is aiming to take the Lifeline service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and extend the
hours of crisis chat support. Funds raised from this event will be used to help train phone counsellors, continue to grow the online chat service and expand the volunteer base and support services to people across Japan. Now, more than ever, these resources are crucial. 


​There are incentives for being the winner of either categories, where your efforts will be announced at the prize giving. Along with the on-the-day incentives and prizes, if you win you’ll also get a trophy giving you and your team official bragging rights!

A team consists of 4 people and your team time will be calculated as the average of the 4 climbers.
