Walking On Sunshine is back, in a new 2018 format, to change down a gear for the 50k.  Loosly representing Unitec Sport, we are keen for a "short" walking challenge to get us moving over the next six months, and of course to continue helping to raise money for Oxfam's amazing work in the Pacific. Anna is a Trailwalker veteran, and is delighted to be joined by her "new" tramping buddies, Maria, Rob and John, who are all excited to get involved and give it a crack! Also, thanks to the amazing Amie and Anja who have put their hands up to be our wonderful support crew.

We'd be thrilled if you can spare a few dollars to help us meet our fundraising target, and will keep you posted on our training antics.
