Healthvision Festival of Disability Sport 2021
The 2021 Healthvision Festival of DIsability Sport held in March was a great success yet again with an increase in participants and spectators on previous years. There were well over 100 physically disabled people of all ages involved in wheelchair rugby, boccia, wheelchair basketball, powerchair football, badminton, sailing, table tennis, blind sports and the push play zone. The awards function on the Saturday evening was a chance to acknowledge and celebrate the sporting achievements of the award recipients and nominees as well as coming together to connect and socilaise with new and old friends from around the nation. The team at Parafed Bay of Plenty could not host this event without the generosity of the festival founders and sponsors; Naming Rights Sponsor: Healthvision. Festival Founders: TECT, Legacy Trust, Tauranga City Council, Attitude, Bayfair. Sporting Code Sponsors: McFall Fuel, Bayleys, Heart Space. Festival Family: NZCCI Commercial Construction, G3 Financial Freedom, Pyes Pa Pet Lodge, Phil Buckland Motors, Bureta Physio, Latitude 37. A huge thank you must also go out to Claudia West of The Project Collective for pulling such a vibrant event together. We are already planning for the next one, see you there!
