The AllSports Activity Fund provides physically disabled young people with grants to help overcome the financial barriers that prevent them from participating in sport.

Halberg Disability Sports Foundation

Founded by Olympic champion Sir Murray Halberg (ONZ) in 1963, the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation aims to enhance the lives of physically disabled young people, their families and communities, by enabling them to participate in sport.

Through Halberg’s AllSports programme, physically disabled young people are supported to participate in sport though funding grants and mentoring. AllSports also has a dedicated team of regional Disability Sport Coordinators who work with schools, clubs and communities to boost inclusion of physically disabled young people in their sporting events and activities.

The Westpac Halberg Awards is the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation’s flagship fundraising event. A highlight on the national sporting calendar, the event honours and celebrates sporting excellence, and is a vital source of income to support the Foundation’s AllSports programme.

Sir Murray Halberg’s vision is to build a society where all people have the ability to participate in the sport of their choice, with no exceptions. With your generous support the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation can continue to strive towards Sir Murray's vision, and make a real difference to the lives of thousands of physically disabled young New Zealanders.
