Halberg Disability Sport Foundation

The Vision - "All sports for all New Zealanders - No Exceptions" - Sir Murray Halberg (ONZ).

The Mission - Halberg Disability Sport Foundation aims to enhance the lives of physically disabled New Zealanders by enabling them to participate in sport and recreation.

The Halberg Disability Sport Foundation (formerly known as the 'Halberg Trust') was founded by Sir Murray Halberg on the belief that all people, regardless of their ability, should have equal opportunity to enhance their lives through sport.

Since 1963, the Foundation has worked tirelessly to make Sir Murray's vision a reality for physically disabled New Zealanders. 

Through our Halberg AllSports programme, we work with physically disabled young people and their families, schools, communities, sports organisations and club to ensure our young people don't miss out on the health, wellness and social benefits that sport and recreation provides. 

This includes a team of Disability Sport Advisers around the country who deliver our No Exceptions Training 'NET" course, connect physically disabled people to sport and recreation opportunities in schools, clubs and in their communities. The Foundation also provides Activity Fund grants for adaptive sports equipment, camps and lessons.

The Foundation's flagship fundraising event is the Halberg Awards, New Zealand's pre-eminent sports awards to honour and celebrate sporting excellence.

With the generous support of our sponsors, partners and funders, we can continue this important work. On behalf of Sir Murray Halberg, we thank you for your support.
