The Halberg Foundation

The Halberg Foundation is a charity set up in 1963 by Olympic athletics champion Sir Murray Halberg (ONZ) which aims to enhance the lives of physically disabled young New Zealanders by enabling them to participate in sport and active recreation.

The Halberg team of Advisers, regionally based around the country, connect physically disabled young people to sport and recreation opportunities, deliver inclusion training on adapting physical activity and assist clubs, schools and organisations to provide inclusive events and programmes. 

The Halberg Activity Fund provides grants to help pay for sports equipment, lessons and assistance at school camps.  The Halberg Games is a national three-day sports competition for young athletes with a physical or vision impairment hosted annually by Halberg.
