Teams of 4 – 42 km – 10 h
Oxfam Peacewalker, the little brother of Oxfam Trailwalker, is a team challenge of 4 people that starts in the city of Mesen. The goal ? Walking or running 42 km with your family, friends or colleagues in less than 10 hours!
Oxfam Peacewalker : family friendly !
For Oxfam Peacewalker 2019, we announce OxFamily Walker : your family is invited to support you during the 7 last kilometers of the trail. Just tell them to join you at the last check-point to finish the walk together. A shuttle will be settled around 2 p.m. (TBC) at the Peace Village in Mesen to give the supporters a ride to the last-checkpoint.
Why Oxfam Peacewalker ?
To remember that millions of citizens fell during Word War One, Oxfam-Solidarity joins Peace Village to offer this human and solidary challenge once again. In its tradition of fight against poverty and injustice and against armed conflicts, Oxfam gives you a new way to contribute by taking part of Oxfam Peacewalker or by helping us as a volunteer during the event.
Projects to help casualties of conflicts
Profits of Oxfam Peacewalker go directly to Oxfam's projects linked to violence and conflicts issues around the world. In Yemen, in Central African Republic, around Syria or in Congo i.e., Oxfam provide emergency responses to crises and helps families to rebuild.
For these reasons, each team is commited to gather an amount of at least 750 euros for Oxfam. An amount that you can easily reach, especially through our help. Our team have sat a list and tools up to help you in this matter. Check out our ABC of fundraising (only in FRENCH or DUTCH) if you need ideas!
