The Halberg Awards is the major fundraising event for the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation. The charity founded by Olympic legend Sir Murray Halberg (ONZ) in 1963 which aims to enhance the lives of physically disabled New Zealanders by enabling them to participate in sport and recreation.
The Foundation works with physically disabled people, their families, schools, communities and sport organisations to ensure they don't miss out on the health, wellness and social benefits that sport and recreation provides.
This includes a team of Disability Sport Advisers who connect physically disabled people to sport and recreation opportunities. The Foundation works with schools, clubs and sports organisations to providing training and support to assist with sports events and programmes.
We also deliver ‘Halberg No Exceptions Training’ a course for schools and organisations to give them the tools and confidence to provide sport and recreation activities to all students across various abilities and skill sets.
The Foundation also hosts the Halberg Junior Disability Games a national, three day sports competition for physically disabled and vision impaired young people. Athletes compete in regional teams with and provides the opportunity to compete against other young people with similar impairments and pursue further sports goals.
The Foundation also provides Activity Fund grants for physically disabled young people for adaptive sports equipment, camps and lessons.
To continue our important disability sport work in your communities, we rely on the generosity and commitment of our supporters and donors. We appreciate any donation to help assist us in enhancing the lives of physically disabled New Zealanders.
