Dear Friends / Chers amis,
On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August 2017, in a moment of calculated madness, the members of the Transatlantic Trekkers decided to participate in the Oxfam Trailwalk in the Belgian Ardennes continuing a world-wide event that was started by Gurkhas in Hong Kong in 1981.
We have signed an unspeakable oath to walk as a team 100 km and, here's the best part, in less than 30 hours! We are preparing ourselves physically, but we're also doing it for a greater purpose and have committed ourselves to raising a minimum of 1,500 euros for Oxfam-Solidarity.
Oxfam funds programmes to address poverty, hunger, climate change, humanitarian aid and we would encourage you to browse www.oxfam.org to see all the great things they do.
Will you please consider participating in one of our fund-raising activities or donate by clicking 'Donate now?'
If you live in Belgium, donations of 40 euros and more are entitled to a tax deduction. Your tax deduction 'mileage' may vary if you live outside Belgium.
Thank you very much! / Merci d'avance,
The Transatlantic Trekkers Team
