About the Yokohama Children Sports Foundation

The Yokohama Children Sports Foundation was founded to create an environment where children, especially those with disabilities, could participate in sports activities in local communities, in order to help them grow up with dreams and hopes through sports.

To achieve this goal, the Foundation seeks to promote sports for the disabled and other sports activities by raising funds, collecting donations and hosting side events in association with various sporting events that take place in Yokohama, as well as by supporting projects, events and other activities conducted by local organizations through donations, aid funds, etc.

The Yokohama Children Sports Foundation was born because of the international triathlon event, World Triathlon Yokohama, using a donation from Johnson Company, Limited.
