Oxfam trailwalkers 2

“Oxfam Trailwalker is the most life changing, team building, foot slogging, friendship forming, group hugging experience…ever!”┬áThis is what the official Oxfam Trailwalker website states, and the slogan is true to form.

For one of our team- Podiatrist Kimberly Scott, this is her third year providing podiatry support to a team- aptly named “Poverty sucks: Let’s walk about it” for the 24 hour period.

#3- Train, Train, Train! Your body needs to be prepared for this endurance event.
