By SCOTT MORGAN Walking 100km in 36 hours around New Zealand s largest lake is a challenge most people would be unprepared for. But for Alex Erasmus, Kelly Gregor, Sarah Wil- son and Hamish Draper, taking on the tough task isallinthenameofa good cause. The quartet is taking part in the Oxfam Trail- walker event around Lake Taupo in April. They want to raise $2500 for the charity. We saw it last year and thought it d be a great thing to do, Alex says. It s about doing some- thing charitable, but not just donating money. It s the next big adventure. The St Marys Bay resi- dent says he s done some running races before, but nothing like this. It s something you only do once -- it s a great bonding exercise. As for training, the group, known as the Fireflies team, have done a number of 20km walks in preparation for the event and hope to com- plete a 50km walk on Waiheke Island at some point. Alex has also taken special precautions to help avoid blisters dur- ing the walk. I bought some special socks for $35 a pair. I ll change them halfway through. I think I ll be struggling to walk the next day. Oxfam executive direc- tor Barry Coates says it s humbling to see how hard people push them- selves with the walk and fundraising. We re really grateful for all the participants and supporters of Oxfam Trailwalker -- they have a big impact. It is an event that encourages people to test their limits and provides a great motivation for doing so. Up to 300 people will take part in the event. If you'd like to support the Fireflies they're having a fundraising event at the Sale St bar on January 25 from 6pm or visit www. oxfam.org.nz/events/ teams.asp?a=show _team_pages& eventid=28&teamid= 4541 to make a donation.
