ACC gets into the Spirit of Gold®

On Monday 7 September 2015 ACC staff went GOLD for the day to show their support for our Paralympians and to raise funds for education programmes and supporting Paralympians on the Road to Rio 2016.

The mufti day was a resounding success with staff around the country entering into the Spirit of Gold®, dressing up, and donating a total of $4,567. Everyone agreed it was an opportunity to learn more about the work of Paralympics New Zealand, further cementing the partnership between Paralympics New Zealand and ACC.

This is a great partnership for ACC as it will:
o Create opportunities for ACC clients with disabilities to try para-sport and be motivated in their rehabilitation from injury
o Inspire New Zealanders with stories of sporting excellence, to lead active, healthy lives

ACC Chief Executive, Scott Pickering says, “Recovery from injury for our clients can be a very long road and to be part of a group of equally motivated individuals who are discovering what they can do, rather than what they can’t, is enormously beneficial to that process.”

Staff were invited to send in photos of their gold outfits with prizes being awarded for the best group and best individual.
