Run Tomorrow

“Run Tomorrow” is a social movement that was begun in 2011, whose aim is to realize a dementia friendly society. People with dementia, their families, friends, young people, and elderly people will together run a short distance, and traverse  the Japan islands by passing on the sash to the next person.
It started as a tiny movement where 171 people ran a distance of 300 km from Hakodate city to Sapporo city in Hokkaido. 4 years later in 2015, it has expanded into a huge project involving 8,000 people, running a total distance of 3,000 km from Hokkaido to Kyushu.
