I have just had my volunteer shifts for Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane confirmed and I couldn’t be more excited about the weekend. On Friday 20 June I will be working at the Event Control Centre as part of the Event Logistics Support Team from 10pm – 6am. Then on Saturday 21 June I will be working at Checkpoint 6 as the Assistant Checkpoint Coordinator from 10:30pm – 4:30am. It’s going to be a wonderful weekend filled with hard work and inspirational stories.
I am proud to say that I’ve been involved with the Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane since the inaugural 2011 event and I keep coming back for more.
- In 2011 I walked the entire 100km as part of The Plovers Take 2 and I am very proud to say that we finished as a complete team of four in just under 33 hours. It was the event that kick started my return to outdoor adventure.
- In 2012 I did three volunteer shifts. The first two were car parking duties at registration and driving around as event courier. The final shift was the Assistant Checkpoint Coordinator at Checkpoint 6.
- In 2013 I marked a section of the trail and then backed up as support crew for my sister’s team: Take a Hike who I am proud to say completed the event as a team of four.
If you are in Brisbane and have some free time on the weekend 20-22 June, I encourage you to consider volunteering because OTWB is a brilliant and inspiring event that raises much needed funds for people in need. You can find more information and register on Oxfam Trailwalker Australia’s website.
