AIA Vitality – Dare to Challenge Award

It is not easy to complete the Oxfam Trailwalker 100 km challenge. You have to be committed to attending countless training sessions as well as to building up extraordinary stamina and willpower. The establishment of the ‘AIA Vitality-Dare to Challenge Award‘ aims to encourage people to take charge of their health; it will reward a first-time Oxfam Trailwalker team that demonstrates the highest motivation and determination to complete the event.

The winning team will receive a HK$5,000 cash reward. Meanwhile, the event’s principal sponsor AIA will donate HK$50,000 to Oxfam to support its poverty alleviation programmes and emergency relief work around the world. The winning team will also earn a priority spot for next year’s Oxfam Trailwalker.

To qualify, all four team members must be new to Oxfam Trailwalker. They must then register for the event by 21 December and upload their own team story about how they have been preparing for the Oxfam Trailwalker to Facebook. Suggested content includes training and the challenges faced during COVID-19, change of lifestyle, diet, physical improvement, team building, etc. The team must also complete the entire 100 km trail during the event. The awardee will be announced in March 2022 More information about the ‘AIA Vitality – Dare to Challenge Award’ will be available on the event website.
