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 ¥4,000,000 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? 

TELL, an accredited not-for-profit organization (NPO) with a 46‐year history to the international and Japanese community in Japan, operates a telephone Lifeline, as well as confidential mental health support and counseling services. TELL Lifeline received approximately 9,000 calls/chat last year from all over Japan, of which roughly 60 percent come from Japanese citizens and 40 percent from Japan-resident foreigners.

TELL are aiming to take their Lifeline service 24 hours 7 days a week and extend our hours of crisis chat support. Your fundraising support will be used to help train phone counsellors, launch and grow our online chat service and expand our volunteer base and support services to people all over Japan.

This event would not be possible without the generous support of Morgan Stanley who are again the main sponsor for the 2019 Tokyo Tower Climb. On behalf of the TELL board and staff we would like to express our sincere thanks to Morgan Stanley for their ongoing support in fighting the stigma surrounding mental health issues in Japan.


​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.

World Suicide Prevention Day 2020

World Suicide Prevention Day is held each year on 10 September. It’s an annual awareness raising event organised by International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

This year’s theme is “Working Together to Prevent Suicide” because IASP believes that collaboration is the most important aspect of effective global suicide prevention.

How to set up your fundraising

CrowdRise is the online sponsorship platform we recommend for the TELL Tokyo Tower Climb.


It’s quick to set up and simple to use. Just click the CrowdRise button below and start your fundraiser on our event page!
• Your friends, colleagues and family can sponsor you easily

• You can keep track of donations

• No need to use a sponsorship form

• Your sponsorship will automatically be sent to us – you don’t need to do anything

I’ve set up my page. What do I do next?

Once you’ve set up your fundraiser page from the CrowdRise event page, there are a number of things you can do:

• Personalize it by adding a photo and a bit of background about why you’re supporting the event.

• Share the link via Facebook, Twitter and email to let everyone know what you’re doing.


Fundraising tip!

See if you can persuade the person you believe will be most generous to be the first donor to your CrowdRise page. That sets the bar high for everyone else, and it’s a competitive world out there!
