ParaFed Canterbury is pleased to announce the Canterbury team selected for the Halberg Games to be held in Auckland on the 5th – 7th October 2018.

The Halberg Games is a 3-day national sporting competition held for athletes with physical disabilities. The Canterbury Junior team of 24 Para athletes and 4 staff is the organisations biggest team yet and has been chosen after an extensive selection process which began in March. Team members will compete in the sports of athletics, boccia and swimming.

Charlotte Pawson (Team Manager) said, “We are thrilled to announce our team two months prior to the games. We have an exciting young team, with 6 athletes making their Halberg Games debut. Along with proving their commitment to training, each athlete has been involved in fundraising, including getting their own individual business sponsor to help them get to Auckland”.

The Halberg Games is a major focus for ParaFed Canterbury and is a breeding ground for future New Zealand representatives. Past team members include Celyn Edwards who represented New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast this year.

The ParaFed Canterbury Junior Team is:

Para athletes: Montana Brown, Thomas Chin, Hamish Cleary, Alistair Coles, Jyvhen Duell, Lilian Exton, Ieuan Edwards, Ben Gould, Sarah James, Grace Johnstone, Una Kinajil-Reding, Zack Lappin, Samuel Manson, Lili-Fox Mason, Andrew MacKenzie, Dominic McLauchlan, Alisha Mill, Jasper Moss, Charlotte Murphy, Rorie Poff, Amber Proudfoot, Joshua Rae, Gaby Smith, Nico Wildbore.

Staff: Charlotte Pawson, Hadleigh Pierson, Kayne Tukapua, Felicity Lowen

The costs for the team to travel to the Halberg Games is close to $25,000. While the team has raised the majority of these funds, there is still a shortfall to make up.
