Report on the Nitto ATP Finals Charity Programs

Nitto Denko Corporation (Headquarters: Osaka, Japan; President, CEO & COO: Hideo Takasaki; “Nitto”, hereafter) invited young patients battling serious diseases from England’s most prominent children’s hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital (“GOSH”, hereafter) to watch tennis players compete to become world champions over the two days of Sunday, November 10 and Monday, November 11. Approximately 90 people, including the children, their parents, and care staff, were invited to the Nitto ATP Finals as part of Nitto’s activities in sponsoring the Nitto ATP Finals, the season finale of the ATP World Tour. Starting in 2017, this year marked the third time that Nitto has conducted charity activities for GOSH. This year, Nitto again provided paired general seating tickets (three pairs, six people) to the semi-finals and finals matches of the Nitto ATP Finals to the GOSH charity auction.

Based on its concept of “We are always cheering for people who take on challenges”, Nitto engaged in these efforts with the hope of “helping bring smiles to faces by having people watch players as they take on the challenge of becoming champion”.
The seats provided an extraordinary experience for the children fighting against their diseases to watch the matches in a relaxed atmosphere with their families as they drew inspiration from the competing players.

Furthermore, this year, we held photo shoots with the Nitto ATP Finals winner’s trophy between matches, as well as workshops to create original cards using circular masking tape patches from Nitoms Inc. (Head Office: Tokyo, Japan; President: Futoshi Tanaka), a consolidated subsidiary of Nitto. The children spent the time as they liked with smiles on their faces from start to finish. They also took home the original cards that they made as a memento of the day. Participants expressed their joy with comments such as, “Words aren’t enough to express this, it was more spectacular than I had expected.”
