Austin-Oita (Japan) at the Austin Marathon

Calling all volunteers!  Join AOSCC for a fun community event.  Practice your Japanese.  Get to know people who are also interested in Japan.  The event is supporting a Water Station for the Austin Marathon on Sunday, February 17.

GREAT event for kids who need volunteer hours.  Share this with kid's school.  Kids under 12 need a parent to volunteer with them.  We will have lots of fun again.  Food provided.  You will learn some Japanese to cheer on the runners!
The location is easy to get to: Aid Station Mile 18 at the Dean Keeton / Dancy Bus Stop just east of UT at I-35.  There is a parking lot.
The hours are 7 am - 1 pm on Sunday, February 17.  You will be released early if the runners have finished early.  You will be given training on site at 7 am.
You will receive an Austin Marathon t-shirt when you register via this link.

Do you know runners or walkers?  We are recruiting runners and walkers for the upcoming February 2019 Austin Marathon and 5K.  Tell your friends to sign up for Team Japan!!!  
We are thrilled to announce that Honorable Consul Fukushima and Honorable Vice Consul Sugiura of the Houston Japanese Consulate will be running on Team Japan.  We will be co-hosting a lunch for walkers and runners on Team Japan with the Consulate and the Austin Japanese Community (AJC) on February 16, 2-5 pm.  If you are walking or running with Team Japan, you will be invited to the event!

Team Japan, AOSCC and ASCI are officially raising funds via Team Japan for Asian Family Support Services of Austin (AFSSA).  If you are on Team Japan, please link your registration with this CrowdRise page.  If you are not walking or running, you can donate directly via this page:
