Our New Zealand Para-Athletes are currently preparing to achieve their goal of 12 Gold Medals at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. At the London 2012 Paralympic Games, New Zealand was ranked 1st in the world, per capita, for medals won. As a charitable organisation, Paralympics New Zealand relies on a mix of donations and fundraisers, government funding and support from the business community to run our sport and community programmes. You can help to support our athletes to achieve their goal to WIN Gold next year...
