Pre-Climb Interview!

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

Prior to moving to Tokyo, I worked as a special education teacher and an alternative education instructor. Children that are struggling have always held a special place in my heart. The climb to the top of Mt Fuji, will be challenging, but not nearly as difficult as what these children with cancer go through every day.

Do you have a message for your supporters?

I hope that our hike to the top will help the Tyler Foundation provide care and assistance to a few of these special children. Please make a pledge to help!

Thank You, Teresa!
