Spirit of Gold Mufti Day


Do you love the Paralympic Games and New Zealand Paralympians as much as we do? Join us for the Spirit of Gold Mufti Day on Friday 7 September as we kick start our fundraising drive for the New Zealand Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Team.

It's simple - wear gold and ask your school community, friends, family and work colleagues to make a gold coin donation to support the New Zealand Paralympic Team and help us identify future Paralympians through our community Para sport development programmes. 

We have developed an extensive toolkit including a range of resources and activities to use in the lead up to and during the Mufti Day. The toolkit will assist to introduce your students, work colleagues and the public to Para sport, Para athletes and positively influence perceptions of disabled people. It also includes some great fundraising ideas and fun activities.

Register your organisation today -  email spiritofgold@paralympics.org.nz

PRIZE ALERT - the organisation that raises the most funds will receive a visit from a New Zealand Paralympian.

Unable to celebrate on Friday 7 September? No problem, you can hold a Spirit of Gold Mufti Day at any time! Just register your interest with us and use the toolkit to find some great ideas.
