The 2021 Knights in White Lycra Go-Go Run is working in tandem with YouMeWe NPO to provide funding for Tokyo area children's homes. Throughout November, run or jog a minimum distance of 55km (55 means "go go" in Japanese). Measure your distance using a GPS watch or a GPS activity tracker app on your smartphone and upload to KIWL's club for the event.
There are over 30,000 children in care homes throughout Tokyo, many of whom have suffered abuse and are facing mental and physical disabilities. Knights in White Lycra is partnering with YouMeWe NPO to give children the chance for a brighter future, through teaching them skills such as computer and financial literacy and providing a platform for English language learning.
The 2021 Go-Go Virtual Run is a chance to give back to local children's homes while achieving an easy personal fitness goal in November. Through supporting the children whose lives your donations directly impact, YouMeWe and KIWL provide an opportunity to build lasting community connections while identifying potential areas of need.

The long-term impact of this fundraiser is increased digital literacy and English language skills for children in state care, providing a competitive advantage in future employability. YouMeWe NPO wishes to give these children every advantage possible in their future careers, starting with necessary and relevant computer skills.
