TIRUN competes in 6th Oxfam India Trailwalker

TIRUN competes in 6th Oxfam India Trailwalker

A single step with a purpose, it is said, is worth a thousand aimless strides. Reflecting this thought, and in line with its endeavor to work towards bridging the gap of inequality between the more fortunate amongst us and the marginalized, TIRUN Travel Marketing, the exclusive India representative of Royal Caribbean Cruises, has decided to participate in Oxfam India’s global flagship fundraising event, Oxfam Trailwalker. A team of 4 of its nominated employees will cover a distance of 100 Kms each, in a timespan of just 48 hours! To be held in Bengaluru from 2nd- 4th February 2018, this event has been organized by Oxfam India as a resistance to the crippling menace of social inequality, and aims to support initiatives in the areas of education, gender justice, equality and so on, in six of India’s poorest states. The event will be see over 300 teams come together and walk for a cause.

Ritu Malhotra, Akash Saha, Richa Gupta and Mahesh Kumara Dadlani, 4 of TIRUN’s employees will undertake this extremely challenging task which would, in all likelihood, see them walk through the night, with little or no sleep until the destination is reached. The event has a minimum participatory fundraising sum of Rs 80,000/-, which TIRUN has not just met but exceeded with a current total raised amount of Rs 1, 08, 334/- and still counting. The funds have been raised to initiate strong steps towards providing equal opportunities to every section of the society and support for the participants has poured in from all quarters. These funds will go a long way in helping Oxfam bridge the yawning gap of unequal distribution of resources and accessibility that plagues our country.

Commenting on the event, Ratna Chadha, Chief Executive, TIRUN Travel Marketing said, “The Oxfam India Trailwalker is a huge challenge that demands the participants to push the limits of their physical and mental capabilities.  Each and every member of the TIRUN family is extremely proud of the fact that these members have stepped up to the task, quite literally. It’s heartening to see how they bring forth the best elements of the TIRUN’s culture to the trail: leading by example, dealing with tough challenges, team work and contributing to a higher objective – in this case, to make an impact that matters for the society. We look forward to TIRUN’s participation in Oxfam’s latest endeavor and hope we are able to successfully complete the challenge and contribute significant amounts of funds, along with the sweat and efforts of our team members, towards making this initiative a rousing success.”

During the challenge, each team member would be required to individually cover a distance of 100 km.  TIRUN’s team members have been practicing extensively to condition their bodies for rising to the demands of the challenge.
