Walking 100 Kilometres in a Day!


Robyn Little, Fiona Rogers, Matthew Buckley (local Banno Paramedic) and Eichelle Carey Ashley from “Fit For Life with Chelle” are Team “The Footsore 4” taking on this year’s Melbourne Oxfam Trailwalker in an effort to raise funds for those suffering poverty here in Australia and overseas.


Last year was our first year as a team and we walked as ‘Team Tenderfoot’ coming in 177th place overall in 26 hrs: 8 mins. There were 417 teams that completed (many didn’t) last year’s event in times varying from 10 hrs: 32 mins to 41 hrs: 58 mins.

About Trailwalker Melbourne
Oxfam Trailwalker is a challenging event that also changes lives, including yours. Oxfam Trailwalker Melbourne, being held 8–10 April 2016, will see teams walk through Warburton, the Dandenong Ranges and Melbourne’s outer suburbs.

Challenge poverty
Oxfam Trailwalker is not just a tough physical and mental challenge — it’s also a rewarding fundraising challenge. With every step they take, teams raise money to help fight poverty around the world. Show your support to a team or make a general donation now.
