Checkpoint three - The cause

Half the Oxfam Trailwalker/trekker challenge is fundraising - to bring about lasting change in peoples’ lives.

With our fundraising leader boards for encouragement however, most teams beat their targets easily. It’s not difficult - you are undertaking an enormous personal challenge and you’ll find colleagues, friends and family will want to be part of your success.

Fundraising is fun!

Teams must raise a minimum amount to enter an Oxfam Trailwalker, but we have the resources available to help you on your way. Many walks have their own team fundraising pages. You’ll find fundraising can be great fun too! 

The money you raise will help lift people out of poverty across the globe and challenge the mechanisms that keep them in poverty. Oxfam works with local communities in more than 90 countries to alleviate poverty and demand justice.
