India’s biggest Walkathon and Fitness-Fundraising event, Oxfam Trailwalker, is scheduled to start from February 7-10, 2020 in Bengaluru.
The Oxfam Trailwalker event will mark its 9th edition in Bangalore having registration open for the contestants. Desirous Contestants can register themselves by visiting their website.
The trail passing through more than 30 villages will start from the edge of beautiful valley in the Nandi Hills in Bengaluru covering a whole distance of 50-100 Kilometers.
In its last event happened in Mumbai last December, fitness enthusiasts from across all walks of life have joined the cause. At the event more 800 participants took part carrying the noble theme of the event Equality4All.
Being the biggest fund raising event in India, Oxfam Trailwalker last year raised over Rs 5 Crores to contribute towards Oxfam India’s projects on education, health, gender, forest rights and discrimination in the six poorest states of India (Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh).
“It is our constant endeavour to push our limits with every event, and the response in Mumbai is proving to be a great motivation to keep going. The responsibility of standing up for what is right always lies with us and as conscious, privileged citizens of this country, we must act on it. Apart from using fitness as a reason to be part in the Trailwalker, I believe if we truly care for our fellow citizens, it is these small choices we make that can drive change in the nation”, says Oxfam India CEO Amitabh Behar.
Oxfam Trailwalker is an environmentally sustainable event. Rigorous impact assessments are done to ensure that the event is sustainable and the waste generated during the event is effectively managed. Over the years, Trailwalker has successfully developed into a top-notch international fundraiser, challenging walkers in 17 cities across 9 countries including Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.
