Halberg Disability Sports Games

    

We are proud that some of our Corporate Traveller team volunteered at this year’s Halberg Disability Sports Games at Kings College, Auckland.

The Halberg Games, hosted by the Halberg Foundation is a national three-day competition open to young athletes aged 8-21 years olds that are disabled or visually impaired. Around 150 athletes competed in 12 regional teams across 20 different sports including; swimming, wheelchair basketball, blind cricket, blind and wheelchair rugby and athletics.

The Games gives young people the opportunity to connect, compete, enjoy the thrill of competition and pursue further opportunities in sports.

“What an inspiring day encouraging and supporting all of the young athletes. It was incredible to see the dedication and commitment towards all of the sports they were competing in - a real eye-opener.”
