TANIA BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF SPORT TO TEACH YOUNG PEOPLE HOW TO BE THEIR BEST. THAT THE RULES OF THE GAME HELP GUIDE US ON AND OFF THE COURT OR THE FIELD.
The Tania Dalton Foundation has been established to ensure Tania’s passion for sport and for helping others lives on. The Foundation aims to make a meaningful difference to young New Zealanders in our community. It supports young New Zealanders, from all circumstances and stages of development, to unlock their talent and be their best selves.
“Tania will be remembered for an incredible sporting legacy, as one of New Zealand’s favourite sporting personalities. She was a naturally talented athlete who backed it up with guts and heart as a player and a team mate.
Even more than her sporting success though, she will be remembered for how she lived every day. She lived as we might all strive for – never on the side line, always in the action, bringing her A-game as standard… with a big heart and an easy smile, sucking the juice out of life.”
- Duane Dalton
