Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games

Staunch supporters of extraordinary people

It’s not every day you get to team up with your heroes. The New Zealand Paralympic Team are extraordinary. Not only do they show resilience in the face of adversity, they challenge the norm, push boundaries, and show us all that no obstacle is too great to overcome.

Although the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games is just around the corner, our Paralympians have been training day in, day out in gyms, tracks, and pools all over the country.

As staunch supporters, we’re humbled to be a small part of this extraordinary team as they prepare for glory on the world stage. As Kiwis, we’d just like to say… Go and smash it.
 

Support our extraordinary people

As Kiwis backing Kiwis, we hear that you want to show your support for our Paralympians competing in Tokyo. Whether you want to gift a packet of Pineapple Lumps or write a message of encouragement to your local Paralympian, we’re here to make this happen.

We'll announce more details about this as we get closer to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
