Sree Pillai Shines On! in 2012

2012/08/22 17:28 Challengers, Shine On! Challenges

Sree Pillai will climb Mt.Fuji in this year’s Shine On! Fuji Challenge on September 1st to raise money for Shine On! Beads of Courage Program, which helps children to record, tell, and own their stories of courage during their cancer treatment.


Name: Sree Pillai
Place of Birth Kerala -India
Favorite Food Egetarian /Vegetarian
Hobbies/interests: I love colors -sketching and painting. I enjoy walking under the beautiful sun in the morning and believe that Sun is the source of energy and I love spending most of the time under Sun…crazy …but i just love it. As said by Helen Keller, 1891, “The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – but just felt in the heart.” I love working as a volunteer especially for blind associations helping them “see the Invisible.” I have been associated only with blind associations to date. This is the first time I am volunteering for a cancer foundation.

Pre-Climb Interview!

Why have you chosen to climb in the Shine On! Fuji Challenge?

I came to Tokyo recently after I got a transfer from my employer Mediacom (Group M). I read about Tyler Foundation and was very impressed with the innovative activities that they are doing to boost the courage of children who are undergoing cancer treatment. I choose to climbing in the Shine On! Fuji Challenge because I want to make those children feel that it’s not just them – everybody is fighting for their life every day and with every new sunrise comes a new life in everybody’s life. I want to view the sun rise from the summit of Mt. Fuji and will carry beads of courage to the summit and give the beads to children who are in the course of treatment for a beautiful sunrise every morning!
