Paramatta, Australia (PressExposure) August 21, 2009 -- FOUR workmates from a leading Sydney surveying, planning and engineering firm have signed up for a fearsome challenge across 100 kilometres of tough Australian bush to fundraise for charity.
Bowdens Group team members Adrian Seidler, Matthew Glen, Minh Tran and Steven Gott will complete the Oxfam Trailwalker challenge in August to raise money for disadvantaged communities in Australia and overseas.
The Oxfam Trailwalker is renowned as one of the toughest and greatest treks, requiring participants to cross 100 km of Australian bush in under 48 hours. The trail stretches from the Hawkesbury River to Sydney Harbour, finishing at Georges Heights in Mosman.
Each team also commits to raising at least $1,000 to support Oxfamâs work in 26 countries, including indigenous Australia.
Team Leader for Bowdens, Steven Gott, is excited about the effort and without a hint of irony says the team will cope by taking the walk one step at a time.
âWe searched for a worthy cause and chose the Oxfam Trailwalker because itâs about supporting communities in need that rely on outside help. Our company projects are always managed as a team, so weâve begun planning and training for the trail in the same way, as a group, and that will get us over the line,â he said.
Bowdens Group is seeking support from clients and business partners to boost the teamâs fundraising and the foursomeâs training is already âon trackâ to complete the trail well within the time limit, together.
