Thank you for continuing to support the Oxfam Trailwalker (OTW).
The OTW is a very challenging activity. Participants have to hike up 23 hills/mountains, including Tai Mo Shan – the highest of them all, climbing a total of about 4,830 meters. It also involves many uphill and rugged roads. As such, we would strong advise participants to prepare in advance and familiarise themselves with all sections of the trail before the event.
The donations raised through the OTW help Oxfam Hong Kong (OHK) and communities fight poverty to improve their lives. These donations have also enabled OHK to implement various poverty alleviation projects and respond to COVID-19 in Hong Kong over the past year. To learn more, please visit OHK’s website: https://www.oxfam.org.hk.
