Clearbox Systems COO Greg Reid, along with his team ‘Clearsox’ have been training to complete this year’s Oxfam Trailwalker in Sydney. The event consists of a 100km walk through bush and trails, beginning at Brooklyn and ending in Mosman, taking the team an estimated 36 hours.
While the team here at the Clearbox Systems office have been busy eating Oxfam Chocolate blocks to raise money, the real fighters of Clearsox, team members Greg Reid, John Dean, Patrick Crowe and Phillip Gruber, have been training for months in order to complete this incredible effort, all in order to raise money for Oxfam Australia. The Oxfam Trailwalker has grown to be one of the world’s ultimate team events with almost 200,000 people taking part and $140 million raised to support Oxfam’s work.
Oxfam are a not-for-profit organisation who aim to end poverty worldwide. To achieve change, Oxfam Australia:
- works with local organisations to build their capacity to influence and effect change that improves the lives of poor people and enables them to voice and claim their rights
- supports women and first nations peoples to claim their rights and hold leadership roles in order to influence and achieve change
- brokers, mobilises, and participates in networks that influence governments, corporations and institutions to become more accountable and bring about sustainable and systemic change locally, and internationally
- brings together organisations that represent poor people, with relevant governments, corporations and institutions, so that they can discuss problems safely and with dignity, and work collaboratively to identify ways of redressing the imbalance of power.
