FOUR Holy Trinity Lutheran College teachers will tackle the Oxfam Trailwalker challenge to fight poverty.
Donning the team name Foot Soldiers, Horsham teachers Chris Surridge, Matthew McLoughlin, Adam Engert and Samantha Engert will walk 100 kilometres together on March 24 through the Dandenong Ranges.
As team leader Mrs Engert said the group was up for the challenge.
“This is a crazy challenge, but we have always been passionate about raising money for people who can’t raise money for themselves,” she said.
“We complete the challenge together as a team. No one can be left behind.

“The walk has to be completed in 48 hours, but we aim to do the 100 kilometres in 26 hours.”
Mrs Engert said each member was training in preparation for the mammoth task.
“Because Horsham is a flat walk we have been driving into the Grampians to give us a steeper walk,” she said.
The team aimed to raise $3500 with all money donated to the Oxfam Group. The group has raised $1220.
