This year, we have a member from Wollongong Fitness taking part in the Oxfam Trailwalker
I am taking part in Oxfam TRAILWALKER Sydney 2009.
Oxfam Trailwalker is the world’s greatest team challenge. And it’s also one of the toughest. The challenge is to get a team of four across 100km of Australian bush in less than 48 hours – and to raise at least $1,000 to help to overcome poverty and suffering around the world.
Oxfam Trailwalker is all about teamwork – it is a great way for friends to bond or for work colleagues to develop team spirit. Teams need to start together, go through each checkpoint together, and finish together. They have to train and fundraise together beforehand. Oxfam Trailwalker is a real challenge and our team are training hard and hope to finish as a team of four in 36 hours.
Oxfam works in more than 26 countries around the world including Indigenous Australia. By raising money for Oxfam Australia participants will be making a tremendous difference to the lives of some of the world’s most disadvantaged people.
The event began in 1981 as a military exercise for the elite Queen’s Gurkha Signals Regiment in Hong Kong, and has since grown into one of the world’s leading sporting challenges. Oxfam Trailwalker is a global event, taking place annually in New Zealand, UK, Hong Kong and Japan.
