'If your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for 10 years, plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years, educate children.' - Confucius

I am doing an 8 week boxing challenge for my mental health, to stay fit, strengthen my fighting skills and to overcome the fear of being punched in the face. While doing this amazing training with the best coaches, I have chosen to fundraise for Trees for Survival!

Trees for Survival provides opportunities for schoolchildren to make a practical difference to their environment through planting trees. In the process kids learn about conservation, revegetation, wetland restoration and protecting stream quality. Trees for Survival work with over 150 schools and local communities across New Zealand including in our local area: Wellsford School, Tomarata School, Pakiri School, Mahurangi College, Snells Beach School, Ahuroa School and Tauhoa School.

I loved my own experience volunteering for local tree planting events so I'm excited to support this programme where kids are learning outdoors, getting their hands dirty and being empowered to make a positive impact on their future. Trees for survival are an amazing way to invest in the future, supporting the restoration of our environment and the growth of our youth at the same time!

'The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.' - Chinese Proverb

Update  20 June 2022

Hi everyone!

Less than 2 weeks to go! Boxing night will be on the 2nd of July at the ABA. I am certainly getting nervous.

In the past 2 weeks I've not been able to go to the trainings much due to circumstances, but today I got back into it and have gained a new sense excitement and thrill for this once in my lifetime event.

I want thank you all so much for your donations, they've given me hope and courage to do this and energy to carry on till the end. So THANK YOU!

If you want to see me fight, here is a link to tickets to the event:

Of course I will let you all know how it goes even if you can't be here.

Big hugs and so much love, T xx

p.s Tree planting has been really!!
