FSI's 'Dare To Be Great' Challenge Goes Global...
04/01/17 | Sally Wotton
Continuing FSI's 'dare to be great' motto, the FSI APAC office will be undertaking quite a feat of their own in June...
Heinrich Serfontein, FSI APAC's General Manager, will take part in a 100km trail walk in June with three team mates.
Raising money and awareness for Oxfam Australia, the event, Oxfam Trailwalker, begins at Mount Glorius near Brisbane in Queensland Australia, passes through challenging bushland and stunning national parks, and finishes at Mount Coot-tha.
Teams of four enter this event and have 48 hours to walk or run the 100 km trail, although the FSI APAC team is hoping to finish in 26 hours. It's very likely that they will walk through the night (with little or no sleep) until the end. The event raises vital funds for Oxfam Australia. Oxfam is an independent, secular, non-government organisation working in more than 28 countries and Indigenous Australia.
The team, Victory Walkers, is hoping to raise well over $5,000 to help some of the world's poorest people. The fundraising will enable Oxfam to continue its work delivering projects that support orphans and people affected by HIV and AIDS in Southern Africa, that educate people in Laos on efficient farming techniques and that improve Indigenous health and wellbeing in regional Australia.
