In August Tanja will do a parachute jump from an airplane at about 4000 metres, then free fall for about 1 minute, travelling at 200 km/h towards earth. She said: “The parachute hopefully opens and I can enjoy the views of Lake Constance.”
Tanja has lived in the UK since 1998 and in Newcastle for the last five years. Her family still lives in Berlin and Bavaria
She explained the reasons behind her fundraising efforts : “I’m appealing to you today to help me raise money for Cancer Research UK and I’d really appreciate your support. I have decided that it’s time for me to be brave. My Dad has been through a lot in recent years and it wasn’t always possible for me to be there due to the distance we do live apart. He has endured the trauma of cancer twice and fought it successfully.”
