Oxfam Trailwalker has helped raise close to $2 million for great causes since it was first held in Whakatāne in 2016. Oxfam New Zealand is now preparing to do it all again in 2018, and to get the ball rolling they are hosting an information evening in cooperation with Whakatāne District Council.
Amanda Wright, Event Manager at Oxfam New Zealand, says her team is excited to get the momentum going for next year’s event. “We have a number of teams already registered, but there’s still time to get a team together and get involved.” she says. “The information session will provide more detail on what’s involved, and also provides an opportunity for friends, family, colleagues and support crew to find out what it’s all about.”
The info evening promises to answer any questions new entrants might have and will also reveal any changes for those coming back. And for those not wanting to do either the 50 km or 100 km courses, there will be info on how you can get involved in other ways.
The evening will be held at the Whakatāne i-SITE on Thursday, 9 November from 6 – 7 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Anyone interested in attending is asked to The following link opens in a new window.sign up at Oxfam’s website or call one of the events team at Oxfam 0800 600 700.
