Half the Oxfam Trailwalker challenge is fundraising. By fundraising Oxfam Trailwalkers are making real change happen for people around the world.
We ask Oxfam Trailwalker teams to raise a minimum of $2000. We know this may seem daunting at first but your team is in this together and we are here to help you every step of the way. Most teams raise well above the minimum fundraising requirement and have a lot of fun in the process!
Since Oxfam Trailwalker New Zealand started way back in 2006 people just like you from all walks of life have raised an incredible $4,764,954 towards Oxfam's vital work in alleviating poverty and demanding justice for the world's poorest communities.
