Challenge yourself. Challenge poverty.
Half the challenge of Oxfam Trailwalker is walking 100km or 50km. We know this is a huge challenge! The other half of the challenge is fundraising. Completing both gets you a big tick in our books and of course, you can boast you’re an Oxfam Trailwalker! By fundraising, Oxfam Trailwalkers are making a real change happen for people who need it most 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 challenged themselves and challenged poverty to raise over an incredible $8,300,000 towards Oxfam's vital work in reducing poverty and demanding justice for the world's poorest communities.
Minimum fundraising deadline: March 21, 2016
Final fundraising deadline: May 1, 2016
