Dallas-Sendai programs
by Paul Pass
Funds will be used to support Dallas-Sendai programming, which strengthens the friendship city relationship between Dallas and Sendai. This connection has been strong since the Dallas-Sendai friendship city inception in 1997 and a notable highlight is raising $186,000 in 2011 for recovery efforts after the Great East Japan Earthquake, which devastated Sendai and the Tohoku Region. Recent programming includes 1) the Dallas-Sendai Young Ambassadors Program, which is a high school student exchange in July and August of each year; 2) sending Dallas runners to the Sendai Half-Marathon every May; and 3) occasionally bringing Sendai runners to Texas to compete in the BMW Dallas Half-Marathon in December.
Goal: $1,000.00
