Helping Japan Earthquake Bu-Brothers

Tai Kirby, Joh Kirby

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/joh.tai.japaneseearthqu

Hi.  We're the bu-brothers.  We're Tai and Joh Kirby and we are both year 7 and year 4.  We are half Japanese half Candian.  We are raising money for the Japanese earthquake that has recently occured.  Many lives and homes were destroyed and we think money is needed so we want to achieve something out of this and help Japan and the people that live there as well.  We are young, but it doesn't mean we can't make a difference.  Every little penny counts.  We will be running for 303km which is the distance betweeen Tokyo and Sendai, which Sendai has been destroyed.  We need your help.

It says that our target is 606 pounds (1 pound per kilometer x2) but we would like to raise as much money as we can to help.  Thank you.

So far, We have ran...


Tai Kirby: 303 km  I made it!!!!!

Joh Kirby: 124 km Great Job!!!
