Since attending the Halberg Outward Bound course in 2017, 19 year old Amy Dunn has found a passion for disability sport and inclusion.
Amy has short stature and is currently studying at WINTEC, towards gaining qualification as an Occupational Therapist.
After a positive experience attending the Halberg Outward Bound Amy increased her involvement with the Foundation. She has since taken part in the Halberg Games, Raglan Surf Day, Halberg Challenge and the Waikato Sports Day. As well as being a regular at Halberg events both as a participant and as a volunteer, this year in 2019 she became a member of the Youth Council.
Amy says that sport has given her many physical and mental benefits.
Halberg Senior Adviser Dave MacCalman admires Amy’s passion for sport and for the Halberg programmes she supports.
Amy believes that the only disability in life is a bad attitude, and that when it comes to disability and sport the focus should never be on what someone can't do, but what they can do.
