By attending you’ll be supporting Sir Murray Halberg’s charity changing lives through sport… 

The ISPS Handa Halberg Awards is the major fundraiser for the Halberg Foundation, Sir Murray Halberg’s charity which aims to enhance the lives of physically disabled young New Zealanders by enabling them to participate in sport and recreation. 

The core work of Halberg includes a team of regional Halberg Advisers throughout New Zealand. These dedicated and expert staff work with physically disabled young people and their families to get them involved in sports and recreation. They also collaborate with schools, local sport and recreation organisations, facilities and clubs to raise awareness and capability for the provision of inclusive sports programmes and events.

The Advisers deliver Halberg Inclusion Training - a course on adapting physical activity to include all New Zealanders in mainstream activities, events and programmes.  The aim of the course is to increase knowledge and skills of teachers and sport deliverers to give them the confidence and resources to deliver quality sporting opportunities to all.

The Halberg Games is a national, three day sports competition for physically disabled and vision impaired young people aged eight - 21 years. Halberg hosts the sports festival which give the attendees the opportunity to compete against other young people with similar impairments and pursue further sports goals.

Your support in attending the ISPS Handa Halberg Awards will help make a life changing impact on the lives of young Kiwis and help ensure they can experience all the benefits of being active.
