Breakfast Club Sponsorships
Breakfast Club’s Sports Academy has supported Tegan for the last 4 years, while she was initially a student at Randwick Park School. She now attends One Tree Hill College.
Rotary Epsom, Shoe Clinic Manukau and Sylvia Park as well as BLK Sports have sponsored Tegan and together supplied her with her netball shoes, training gear and clothing.
This year Tegan was once again selected to play for the Samoan Under 13 Netball Team. When I asked her mother for some background on her daughter she sent us this:
“Since year 7, Tegan has represented Papakura for reps in the #1 team each year. This year she was awarded the Most Promising Young Player overall for Papakura. Her College Premier Club team won the presidents round, championship round and most goals. Her Year 9A school team won their division and also won C section at the U15 national tournament held in Taranaki. She has just been selected in the #1 team for Auckland Samoa U13 netball team to play in the Pacifica Cup on the 1st October 2016 and also made this team in 2015.”
We have asked Tegan and her mother for permission to explain her health issues:
“Tegan is a type 1 diabetic and was diagnosed at the age of 6. She is insulin dependent, which is issued by a pump. Since being diagnosed, she is constantly working hard to keep her blood sugars under control which isn’t always easy.”
Tegan never asks for sympathy or favours due to her illness. She uses it as strength, which is commendable!
We believe we have a Silver Fern in the making here.
