‘Oxfam Trailwalker 2022 – VIRTUALLY TOGETHER’ ‘Back on our Feet, resilient in the face of change’
Thank you for your patience and trust, and for always showing the Oxfam Trailwalker (OTW) your unfailing support despite how uncertain the past three years have been.
Oxfam Hong Kong (OHK) has received written notice from the government. Although, we have already reduced the event size to 400 teams (1,600 participants), the government believes that there remains a large number of people involved in the event. And with the prolonged duration of the event, participants will need to take off their masks to consume food and beverages. After exploring all possible options and after much careful consideration, we have decided that we will need to switch to a virtual OTW. We are proactively working on launching ‘Oxfam Trailwalker 2022-VIRTUALLY TOGETHER (OTW 2022-VT)’, which will be held from 28 Nov to 18 Dec, further details will be announced next week.
Despite the uncertainties in the world, we know that all trailwalkers are resilient in the face of change, just like our theme this year. We sincerely invite all of you to join us to walk for a good cause. We hope that you will continue to support this meaningful event.
To teams that raised over HK$20,000 in OTW 2021-VIRTUALLY TOGETHER, we would like to offer our heartfelt apologies as we are unable to offer a team quota for an in-person event this year. That said, this team quota will be carried forward until we can hold the next in-person OTW event. If any of these teams would like to join the OTW 2022-VT, they will only need to raise the minimum donation amount; the registration fee will be waived.
The donations you raise will be used to support OHK’s poverty alleviation work in Hong Kong and around the world.
It has been our goal to host an in-person Oxfam Trailwalker again. We will continue to work with various government departments; we are aiming for an in-person event in February 2023. We will be sure to keep you up to date on the latest developments. As always, we remain committed to pressing ahead with you and hope to see you on the trail soon.
