Who we are

Thousands of staff, Trustees, volunteers, friends and supporters have worked to achieve Sir Murray Halberg's vision since 1963. In that time, the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation has grown to become a professional charitable organisation, led by a skilled and passionate team.

The Executive Board

The Halberg Disability Sport Foundation is governed by an Executive Board comprised of primarily Trustee representatives from four regions across New Zealand.

Sir Murray Halberg (MBE, ONZ)

Sir Murray Halberg (MBE, ONZ)

Sir Murray Halberg's greatest sporting success was winning Gold in the 5000 metres at the 1960 Rome Olympic Games, but his feats spanned more than a decade on running tracks. Despite his outstanding sporting success on the world stage, Sir Murray's dedication to the welfare of disabled young people has won him his greater fame and higher accolades. Sir Murray was awarded his Knighthood in 1987, and in 2008 was appointed to New Zealand's highest non-titular honour: the Order of New Zealand. Sir Murray was the fourth person to be awarded the Blake Medal for services to disabled young people and the sport of athletics.
