A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
Can your team go the distance?
Your team has to walk 100 km in a limited time - usually 48 hours - in all weather and across some rough terrain. You must work together to all complete the distance within the time. It's a true test of teamwork and determination and for those that make it the sense of achievement is immense.
This is not just a physical challenge though, you will be raising money to overcome poverty and injustice around the world and at the same time acting as an ambassador for Oxfam's work.
There are seventeen trails to choose from in nine different countries. They go through some spectacular locations including the mountains of Barcelona, rugged Australian bush and through a volcanically active national park in Japan that finishes at the foot of Mt. Fuji.
Since it began in 1981,1000s of walkers around the world have successfully taken on the challenge. In 2012 over 22,000 people collectively walked over 2.2 million kilometers and raised over $18 million US.
If you think you have the team to take on the challenge then take a look at our upcoming events and support resources.
We look forward to welcoming you to an event soon.
