Talk about a challenge!

Posted in Out and About on .

On the weekend of 15-17 June 2012, the Perio Care Pedestrians will be walking 100km to raise money and awareness for Oxfam Australia. The event is Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane 2012. It begins at Mount Glorious and travels through D’Aguilar National Park to Mount Coot-tha.

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 including Indigenous Australia.

We hope to raise well over $1000.00 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.
