Yamathon is an annual event run by IVG Japan since 2010. At Yamathon, teams of 3-4 supporters run together around the Tokyo Yamanoto Line, visiting each station. The money raised by IVG goes to various charities.
In 2015, IVG worked hard to raise funds for a PoH project in Ofunato, Iwate Japan. To show our support, we brought our Imagination Playground blocks and set-up an area for children waiting for their marathon running parents to finish. It was exciting to see everyone coming together for such a wonderful event. PoH thanks IVG for all of their hard work
