Icon enters the Sydney Oxfam Trailwalker!

100 klms to raise money for Oxfam

Thursday, March 13, 2014

In August, four Icon team mates will be walking 100km to raise money and awareness for Oxfam Australia. The event is Oxfam Trailwalker. It begins at Brooklyn, passes through challenging bushland and stunning national parks, and finishes at Georges Heights Oval.

Teams of four enter this event and have 48 hours to walk or run the 100km trail, although our team is hoping to finish in 24 hours.  It’s very likely that we’ll walk through the night (with little or no sleep) until the end. The event raises vital funds for Oxfam Australia.  Oxfam is an independent, secular, non-government organisation working in more than 28 countries and Indigenous Australia.

Icon Integration is hoping to raise well over $1500 to help some of the world’s poorest people. Our fundraising enables Oxfam to continue its work delivering projects that support orphans and people affected by HIV and AIDS in Southern Africa, that educate people in Laos on efficient farming techniques and that improve Indigenous health and wellbeing in regional Australia.

Our Oxfam Trailwalker team, Paul, Pete, Andres and Antoine will be going the distance and hope that you can support us in this massive challenge. Please consider how you may be able to get behind us, either by sponsoring us directly or referring us to others.  If you would like to sponsor us please follow the link: https://trailwalker.oxfam.org.au/team/home/17670.

The work that Oxfam does is vital to so many people worldwide and 100km is a long way to walk!  But putting ourselves through months of intense training to walk 100km is worth it for the impact our fundraising has on others through Oxfam Australia’s programs.

So please help & give generously to make a real difference.

Thank you!
