We accepted the Oxfam Trailwalker challenge once again!

Last year, four brave Social Pointers accepted the challenge of walking 100 km in support of Intermon Oxfam and their charitable actions, and some of them managed to finish!

This year, new Social Pointers followed in their footsteps and tried to achieve a big goal: giving their best to support this NGO and all the people they are trying to help with their actions.

Specifically, eight people represented Social Point in the event, and some of them once again achieved the goal of reaching the finish line. Not all of them made it, but they united in their effort to cheer on the brave survivors!

We want to congratulate and show our admiration to the participants, as well as thank all our supporters for your help and donations! We are proud to have such charitable colleagues!

Two of the Social Pointers who succeeded in the challenge want to share their experiences with all of us!

Alex Osou…

The trailwalk was a nice challenge, both physically and mentally. At night there were some tough moments, especially after the short breaks when my muscles cooled down and sleep deprivation kicked in. Luckily we had a fantastic support crew that helped and motivated us all along the way. Reaching the finishing line, I was really happy and relieved that I didn’t have to walk anymore, and after a few days all the pain was forgotten. I’m already looking forward to next year’s trailwalk.

Trailwalker was an unforgettable experience, without a doubt. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to run with, not to mention the best support team ever! Everyone one of us had a “down moment” but as a team we encouraged each other and made it to the end! For those looking to do it next year, remember that physical condition is only somewhat important…the biggest challenge is mental. Set your sights on the finish line and don’t look back!

What about you? Will you accept the challenge of walking 100 km next year? If you are interested you can find all the information here.
