Volunteering for Tokyo Yamathon – Miyu Kameyama

 

On May 13, I joined the Yamathon as a volunteer, not as a
participant. By joining as the staff, I experienced how hard it is to
make the event exciting and also understood a little about how
work with adults in the real society. My job was to cheer the
teams, guide the finished teams, inform the results, and hold the
goal tape.
Through volunteer work, I became aware of what I could do for
the society, what skills I could use, and understood that the adult
society doesn’t work as I expected. Not only knowing my
capabilities, I also realized how great Yamathon was.
I think everyone who joined Yamathon shared the similar sense
of happiness. Yamathon was a fantastic event that brings warm
smiles to both staff and participants.
