Oxfam TowerRun 2019



Introduction

The Oxfam TowerRun, which takes place annually at the Macau Tower Convention and Entertainment Centre – the tallest building in the city – is a fundraising sports event that Oxfam in Macau has organised since 2014; this year marks the event’s 6th anniversary. Participants will take up the challenge of running up 1,298 steps from the ground floor of the tower to the adventure deck on the 61st floor. Oxfam aims to raise funds through this event to support its poverty alleviation work worldwide.

The event includes individual and team relay challenges. Upon raising the minimum donation amount, participants can take part in the individual challenge, or join the team relay through their company or organisation. Not only can participants enjoy this exciting challenge, they can also raise funds to help the poor around the world become more self-reliant and improve their livelihoods.

Every step you take makes a difference to people living in poverty.
