What is the Corporate Cup?
The corporate cup is a team race event allowing corporate supporters to challenge each other in both fundraising and fastest time.
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 allowing 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.
Last year 16 corporate teams teams registered for the Tokyo Tower Climb. Together with the school and individuals teams, an amazing 2,100,000 yen was raised!
In a year that was incredibly challenging financially for TELL, you helped keep our Lifeline operating. Not only that but we were able to extend our crisis chat service from one night a week, to Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings. Over 80% of the users who reached out to our chat service last year were aged 13 - 30, many expressed feeling suicidal and that they would not speak to someone on the phone about these issues.
On behalf of the TELL board and staff we would like to thank all of you for your support and helping to save
lives all over the country.
