Trek through 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and unspoiled villages on the legendary Kokoda Track and raise funds for Oxfam
In past years Oxfam New Zealand organised a variety of adventure challenges - special group trips to Southeast Asian countries where participants also fundraise for Oxfam. These included a number of cycle tours and the highly successful Oxfam Amazing Race 2009, in which teams raced through Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand.
Cycling Laos For Charity - An Adventure Challenge trip report by Anna Chalmers published in the Dominion Post
Anna Chalmers pays a lot of money to sweat it out on a cycle ride through Laos. But it's all for a good cause. Published in the The Dominion Post, 17 May 2006
Thirteen out of 14 managed the short distance from the Mekong riverbank to the boat waiting to take us to Laos. Not only did I miss, but I ended up ankle deep in mud that stuck like glue.
Ever dreamt about traveling somewhere well off the beaten track, meeting new people, trying new things? Oxfam’s Adventure Challenges offer a chance to do just that. In 2007 we’ll be taking people cycling through Thailand and Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and Yunnan province in China, trekking through northern India and the along Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru.
Oxfam is launching two fantastic new Cycle Challenges – Wild China and The Golden Triangle. The Cycle Challenges make a real difference to people’s lives – not just to the people who take on the challenge but to whole communities that benefit from Oxfam’s work in the Asian region. Participants challenge themselves to raise money towards Oxfam’s work and then cycle through some of the most fascinating, beautiful and least traveled paths in Asia.
Registration is now open for Oxfam New Zealand's latest Charity Challenge, a 13-day, trekking adventure to raise funds for projects in South East Asia and the Pacific. The 'Borneo Bushwacka Challenge' will take adventurers through some of South East Asia's most breath-taking regions in June 2005.
