Tāmaki Makaurau | Auckland

Step by step

Aadyha is supported by Monique from the Tāmaki Makaurau Health and Wellbeing Team to become more active and improve her physical health.

After discussions with Aadyha and her whānau, a plan was pulled together to help her reach her goal of walking to the letter box. At first, she faced challenges that prevented her from achieving this. However, with determination and weekly walks, she started building up her stamina and confidence.

Just before Christmas, Aadyha and Monique headed to the local botanic gardens with the idea of walking 1km (further than ever before).

While they talked and walked, they made their way to Aadyha’s favourite flowers – the red roses. In doing so, they discovered they had walked 1.7km – smashing their original 1km goal!

Since the gardens visit, Aadhya has continued her exercise and now walks confidently to the end of her road every day.
