102 Year Old's Exercise Marathon

Margaret Deas is the oldest member of the Australian Wildlife Society .  She is about to turn 102 years young and her goal is to raise funds to support Australia's precious native wildlife.  She aims to encourage the younger generation to support and love Australian wildlife like she does.  Margaret is donating funds raised to the Australian Wildlife Society.

To raise the funds she aims to complete 102 squats on her 102nd birthday.

She is completing the challenge on the 2nd February 2015.  Watch out for the upcoming story on the news.  On completion we will be posting a video of the challenge on social media. Video link 

For the last year she has been exercising 4 times a week with her physiotherapist, John, with a focus on improving strength and mental cognition.  John has included singing in his program and the results with the participants of his program at Thomas Holt Assisted Living Facility are remarkable.  John reported to us that she is the best 102 year old, in both physical strength and cognitive function, that he has seen in his practice.  Currently she can do between 70 and 90 squats.  

All funds raised will be contributing to one of Australian Wildlife Society's conservation projects.  Read more here.
