Through running, we aim to provide opportunities for people to think about how they can make a contribution to society, such as getting involved in charitable activities, promoting sports, protecting the environment, supporting refugees throughout the world, supporting children with incurable diseases, and animal protection. We hope to link the hearts of each individual with society. This vision underpins the running of the Tokyo Marathon Foundation’s "RUN with HEART" charity program.

The Tokyo Legacy Half Marathon Charity will focus on creating a brighter future with different non-profit organizations to tackle social issues together through the sport of running.
