The Oxfam Trailwalker (OTW) is one of the largest fundraising sporting events in Hong Kong. The event this year has been scheduled for 24 to 26 November 2023 (Friday to Sunday). The 100 km trail starts from Pak Tam Chung in Sai Kung and finishes at Crossroads Foundation in Tuen Mun(The route will be announced later). There are nine checkpoints along the route. The OTW route is quite challenging; participants are advised to train adequately before the event (please visit our website for more information about the route: www.oxfamtrailwalker.org.hk).
Over the past year, Oxfam has implemented a wide range of poverty alleviation work in Hong Kong and has responded to COVID-19 here. This includes providing families with children that live in subdivided flats and elderly people living alone with nutritious meal kits designed by a dietitian through ‘Give A Meal’. And during the early stages of the COVID-19 outbreak, we offered street cleaners masks and other protective equipment to ensure their safety. Please visit Oxfam’s website (https://www.oxfam.org.hk) to learn how the donations raised, including those from the OTW, can help disadvantaged groups improve their lives sustainably.
