Call for MBAAA Trailwalker Teams




On behalf of the HKUST MBAAA Trailwalker team:
 
To continue our proud tradition and legend of our alumni community, HKUST MBAAA Trailwalker team is delighted to invite you to take part in this 100km challenge. HKUST MBA Alumni Trailwalker team is formed by our enthusiastic alumni who enjoy T.R.A.I.L walking.

T      Teambuilding and Leadership
It's an invaluable opportunity to enhance and demonstrate leadership and teamwork.  Participants will have to encourage each other along the way, and to face all the difficulties and challenges together during preparation and event. 

R      Reunion and Continuity
Since the HKUST MBAAA teams' first appearance in Trailwalker in 1999, this is already our 19th participation in a row for this annual event.  We provide a platform to reconnect our alumni hikers / trailwalkers and establish framework for training.

A      Against Poverty 
All fund raised from the Oxfam Trailwalker will be used for poverty alleviation and emergency relief projects in Africa and Asia. 

I       International Network 
Over the years, more than 100 MBA alumni trailwalkers with different nationalities have joined our teams, with majority from Hong Kong, and also from the Mainland China, France, Singapore, etc.

L      Life Changes 
To overcome the 100km challenge, our participants start training way ahead of time and adapt a healthier lifestyle to get themselves well prepared for the event.
