Oxfam Trailwalker, Hong Kong’s most popular hiking fundraising event organised by Oxfam Hong Kong, ended successfully this afternoon when the last team (team number 0960) crossed the finish line in Yuen Long at 1:08 pm today, completing the 100 km trail in 47 hours 8 minutes.

Trini Leung, Director General of Oxfam Hong Kong, presented certificates to the team and other supporting organisations at the Closing Ceremony. This year, 4,502 participants completed the 100 km trail within the required 48 hours, i.e. 88 per cent of all walkers.

Trini Leung said, ‘I am happy to welcome all of you who have come all the way from Sai Kung. It does not matter who reached the finish line first or last. Each team made it this far and has shown great determination and commitment in overcoming all the obstacles and difficulties along the trail. The same applies to our work against poverty. Eliminating poverty is a long and arduous journey. It requires the same Trailwalking spirit, endurance, determination and perseverance you all demonstrated. With your support, we will be able to help more people escape the reality of not having enough and injustice, and ultimately, create a world without poverty.’

Oxfam Trailwalker has become Oxfam Hong Kong's flagship fundraiser and one of the largest fundraising hiking events in Hong Kong. The event is supported by various sponsors, including AIA, the Principal Sponsor starting this year, and State Street which has sponsored the event for 17 consecutive years. Since 1986, more than 88,000 trailwalkers have participated and raised over HK$470 million to support Oxfam’s poverty alleviation work all over the world.

The event has successfully developed into an international top-notch fundraiser, challenging walkers in 16 cities in 10 countries including Australia (Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney), Belgium, England (South Downs, Yorkshire Dales), France, India (Bangalore, Mumbai), Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Spain (Girona, Madrid) and Hong Kong.
