In 2015, Tianna decided to check off a bucket list item. She was inspired by the life and memory of her uncle, Rob “Super Hank” Hankinson, to bravely do something she had never done before: run a marathon. To commemorate the experience, she chose to race in Las Vegas and share her story to raise funds for ARCH, where her uncle had spent his end-of-life journey. Not only did she honour his memory when training and completing her bucket list item, but she was able to exceed her goal, raising $4,000 for ARCH! Tianna’s powerful story inspired us to create The Great Bucket List Challenge.
