FIT For Charity Run is a charity event organised by the financial community and related industries in Tokyo that aims to raise money and to support non-profit organisations that conduct local community activities. The FIT For Charity Organising Committee was established soon after the Major Earthquake off the Coast of Sumatra and Tsunami in the Indian Ocean in late 2004. The very first Charity Run was held in 2005, and since then, the event has become an annual tradition.

The eleventh annual Financial Industry in Tokyo (FIT) For Charity Run was held on Sunday, 8th November 2015 around Meiji Jingu Gaien running course in Shinjuku-ku. This year, over 5,700 individuals from 96 financial services and related foreign and domestic firms came together to raise over JPY59 million. The funds raised were divided equally among the 8 selected beneficiary organisations based in the Kanto region. FIT For Charity Run is dedicated to support non-profit community organisations serving important, but not necessarily well-recognised needs and with limited fundraising capabilities.
