Trail training for Oxfam walk

In January, the O’Keefe Rail Trail played host to Captain Walksalot and the Blister Sisters – four nurses from Bendigo Health who are training for the Oxfam Trailwalker in April. The 100 km walk over 48 hours raises money to help overcome poverty and injustice around the world. After their training walk, Megan sent us a note which said in part:

“Have only recently discovered this walk when looking for training walks around our area in preparation for the Oxfam Trailwalker in April. We’ll definitely be doing the BKRT again as a part of our training. Started at 0615, done by 1100hrs.  Happy with our efforts, hoping to improve though. Thanks for providing the trail – more people need to know about this and I will be telling all I know. Would be awesome for a bike ride too!”

Yep, we think so too. Good luck to the team.

If you want to contribute to Megan and her team’s fundraising efforts you can go to their team page on the Oxfam Trailwalker web site.
