The Yale Club of Japan has decided to support multiple organizations and causes for this year’s Yale Day of Service. This event encourages volunteering at the Pink Ball charity gala, which the RFTC hosts annually, to raise awareness of breast cancer in Japan and raise funds for its programs. 

Now that in-person events are restarting in Japan, we are delighted to feature multiple organizations and causes for this year's Yale Day of Service!

The first organization we'll support is the NPO Run for the Cure foundation (RFTC Japan). RFTC Japan is a leading breast cancer awareness non-profit in Japan. One of their charity events, Pink Ball, is a gala that encourages sponsors, donors, and volunteers to support breast cancer awareness. As part of the Yale Day of Service, we would like to recruit about 5 to 10 volunteers for the event. This year, the gala will take place on Friday, May 13th, at the Conrad Tokyo. Additional information is below:

"All proceeds will go towards the Foundation's outreach programs, including breast cancer educational seminar "Hana-me," the publication of PiNK — our quarterly bilingual magazine for women's health — and "Pink Beauty Party," our community event for breast cancer patients and survivors. All of our programs are developed and carried out free-of-charge to improve the quality of life of breast cancer patients and survivors, as well as to raise greater awareness of the disease in Japan — both in the Japanese speaking and international communities." 

Please check the event page for more details, including COVID-19 safety guidelines and requirements and volunteer slots. Once you have registered, email Marina Yoshumura with your Yale affiliation to let her know you're participating.

Thanks, and Boola Boola!
