FORMER Miss SA finalist, fitness enthusiast and Tafta ambassador, Julia Petersen, is hard at work in training for the upcoming Tafta Trail Run, an event she’s called on other Durbanites to support. Petersen, who ran the event with family last year, said she was just as excited to participate in the event this year as it raised funds to a cause very close to her heart.
“I have always had a heart for the elderly and I love participating in these types of events to raise funds and awareness about the association. The Tafta event allows families to get outside and get fit together and yet still contribute to a worthy cause through donations towards cheer boxes,” said Petersen.
