Coryl recently completed the OXFAM Trailwalker challenge with 7 other Wauchope business women who took up the challenge. They named their team "We thought you said rum 2". Beginning on August 28th, the trail walkers had just 48 hours to walk or run the challenging 100Km trail which began at Brooklyn and finished at Tania Park, Manly.
Oxfam works in more than 28 countries delivering projects including supporting orphans and people affected by HIV in Southern Africa, educating people in Laos on efficient farming techniques, and improving Indigenous health and well-being in regional Australia. All the money raised goes directly to this worthy cause.
Their feet were so sore, their spirits were so challenged. Coryl embodies the TG's Family philosophy. It was that philosophy that egged them on, encouraging and supporting each team member who never thought they could make it. But they did. Proud, happy, tired and all to support this worth cause.
Congratulations to Coryl and the other footsore women who completed the Trailwalker challenge!
