Foundation honouring Dalton’s memory to a T

Tania Dalton's legacy lives on, with the help of some Silver Ferns legends, and a strong dose of her fun and humour. Suzanne McFadden reports.

It’s 16 months since Dalton passed away, following a brain aneurysm, but her legacy is growing.

Twelve promising young sportswomen from throughout the country have been granted the first round of the foundation’s scholarships, and are already achieving their goals.

The latest recipient, Ricshay Lemanu – a Year 13 student at Papatoetoe High School - has just been named in the New Zealand sevens side to play at the Youth Olympics in Argentina. Also in that team is another scholarship winner, Wellington teenager Dhys Feleafaga, who’s one of the first 28 players in rugby history to be contracted to the Black Ferns squad.
