Run for Japan

This is a great idea and worth supporting. As everyone around the world knows by now, our friends in Japan have recently been hit by a devastating earthquake, a massive tsunami, and are now facing a nuclear crisis.

I’m confident they’ll recover from this tragedy, but right now they need our support.

Everyone’s support.

There are many ways to help. Apple has made it extremely easy by allowing you to donate straight from iTunes. I already made a contribution through there.

Another way, more relevant to JoggerTunes, is through the Run for Japan initiative:

Run for Japan is bringing together the global running community and showing solidarity and support through dedicating runs around the World to the people of Japan.

It’s a great idea. I’m dedicating my run this weekend to this. Here’s more information from the Run for Japan website:

The challenge…

To cover 24,901 miles (right around the world) in 28 days with at least one run dedicated from every country in the World. To achieve this runners around the globe are being asked to dedicate just one run to the people of Japan and donate at least one unit of their home currency per mile run.

The fundraising is done through Virgin Money Giving – Run for Japan. If you’re reading this, do it.
