Walking the Wainui hill for 24 hours for a second time!!

Main image
  Wellington

Tania's goal in 2018 was to walk the Wainui hill everyday for the whole year. She completed that goal and walked the hill 528 times (the equivalent to 3500km, which is twice the length of the country) despite of being in a car accident and having a severe concussion.

Tania has successfully lost 75kg over the past decade through exercise and diet, while also obtaining a diploma in exercise science. 2018 was her 10th year going to the gym and keeping the weight off.

One of her goals is to have an operation to remove the excess skin she has from the weight she has lost. There is currently no government funding for operations like this.

Tania is walking to raise money for the operation. She is prepared to do what she needs to achieve her third and final transformation.

Tania walked the Wainui hill on 15/02/19 for 24 hours, she managed to walk the hill 21.2 times totalling at 79km! The only time she had a break was if someone else was walking the hill in her place.

Tania will be walking the Wainui hill for a second time on 08/11/19. Tania has decided she is going to continue walking the hill and take it up to 1000 times for 2019!!

I have never met anyone like her before, she is one of a kind. She inspires me everyday and others just by being herself and lives life to the fullest. She doesn't think that she is inspiring because she is just being herself.

Every dollar will count to help her achieve this goal.

Jayshri Dayal's involvement

Tania is my best friend and she is always willing to help others, she goes above and beyond to help others. Tania makes me believe that I can achieve anything, she inspires me everyday just by being herself.

Use of funds

Will be used for operations to have excess skin removed due to weight loss. If there was any remaining money, Tania would put the money back into her community.
