The "Suits in Boots" team from Christchurch firm Harmans Lawyers consists of Colin Abernethy, Mary Crimp, Fay Hughes and Fay's husband Aaron Bates who is Project Manager, Foley's Plumbing.

The team has set itself the goal of raising $10,000 and is now asking for support from fellow members of the profession around New Zealand. This can be done by checking out their team page.

Set up by the legendary elite Queen’s Gurkha Signals Regiment in 1981 as a military exercise to test teamwork, endurance and determination, Oxfam Trailwalker is a super-tough challenge that will see Suits in Boots having to stay together in their team of four and walk through the night (and over sections of steep Grade 5 trails) to complete the 100km course.
