Staff sacrifice toenails for good cause
Ria Deamer, David Lyle, Jackie Ross and Tom Rubin from the Faculty of Medicine sacrificed a weekend and several toenails to raise money for Oxfam by completing one of the toughest team challenges in the world - the Oxfam Trailwalker.
This 100 km endurance event, which must be completed within 48 hours, was held on the 26-27 August. Starting at Hunters Hill and finishing at French's Forest, the walk went via Lane Cove National Park, Galston Gorge, Kuringai National Park and Garigal National Park.
Team MedFac100 completed the event in 29 hours and 24 minutes, coming equal 256th place and raising over $2,000 for Oxfam.
Team MedFac100 can now be recognised by their subtle limp and sock and sandal style.
