Spirit of Gold

Paralympics New Zealand (PNZ) was established in 1968. It is a charitable organisation with a three-fold purpose:

1) prepare, select and lead NZ teams to international competitions and the Paralympic Games
2) work with athletes, partners and government agencies to inspire those living with disability in NZ society
3) work to create greater awareness, understanding and acceptance of disability amongst the wider public.

PNZ is the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for NZ and is one of 170 NPC's worldwide affiliated to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC). PNZ has 27 member organisations and as the umbrella, takes leadership and responsibility for promoting and growing NZ Para-Sport.
