The Walkathon Logo Design

A community collaboration that suits us "to a T"

Every year we pays our money and gets our Walkathon shirts.
Some are worn only that one time and then tossed away, never to be thought of again. However, many are kept. Very likely, more are kept than you think. In fact, one dedicated volunteer has so many that he made a tablecloth out of his Walkathon T-Shirts .

The famous, "Walkathon T-shirt" tradition began in 1995 - the fourth year of the Walkathon. It is always an original design, created by students of Nagoya International School and submitted for consideration at the ACCJ’s annual Walkathon Kick-off Party, where the designs are displayed and voted on by attendees from NIS, the ACCJ, charity representatives, and guests.

The winners receive a prize and the honor of having their design used on a t-shirt worn by thousands of people. Over time, through the normal churn of our community, its likely these shirts have found their way to all four corners of the globe, and that is pretty cool.

What's with the colors??

Typically, the T-shirts are white. However, you may have noticed some people wearing brightly-colored T-shirts sporting the same official logo design. Key volunteers are given these brightly-colored versions in order to easily be identified.

So, if you have any questions, try asking someone with a colored shirt!
Go on....we don't bite!
