Today, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane 2020 in line with Federal and State Government strategies to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
While the cancellation of the Brisbane event is of course disappointing for us all, the health and safety of our walkers, volunteers, support crew and all who are involved in Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane is our main priority.
Oxfam Trailwalker is the ultimate team challenge that changes thousands of lives. It takes a significant commitment of time, energy and courage by participants, staff, volunteers and stakeholders to prepare for this event. We are incredibly grateful for all your hard work and support in the lead up to Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane 2020. You are making a huge difference to the lives of people living in poverty – thank you.
The fund’s you have raised are already being used to improve the lives of vulnerable people living in poverty around the world – including those who are likely to be hit hardest by COVID-19. Oxfam is already responding to COVID-19 in some of the world’s poorest countries, like Yemen, Bangladesh, Timor Leste and many others. We’re distributing essential supplies including personal protective equipment and hygiene kits. We are providing emergency materials and food to households, upgrading water and sanitation systems at refugee camps and health facilities, and continuing training and awareness-raising activities.
To support you, we’ve put together some FAQs which I hope will provide further clarity. In addition, if you have any feedback or would like to make suggestions, please contact our remote team on email@example.com.
Take care and stay safe.
