2017 Wellington Hospitality Group Sportsperson of the Year Awards - presented by Sport Wellington. Wednesday 14 June - TSB Bank Arena Congratulations to all of the 2017 finalists and winners!

20 years of Green Prescription! On Monday 19 June, Dr Jonathan Coleman - Minister of Health and Minister of Sport and Recreation along with representatives from the local DHB, PHOs, Sport New Zealand, Sport Wellington and the Ministry of Health celebrated the 20th anniversary of Green Prescription. More than 400,000 Green Prescriptions (GRx) have been given out over the last 20 years to help people get active and change their diets. Sport Wellington is proud to deliver this programme across the greater Wellington region in partnership with the region’s District Health Boards. We have been involved with GRx since 1998, and during this time we have supported a significant proportion of the 500,000 New Zealanders who have benefited from the programme, increasing their levels of physical activity and improving their nutrition.

Sport Wellington would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers in our community that contribute their time, skills and passion to sport and recreation. #NVW2017

An Active Family is a Healthy Family

 

Green Prescription (GRx) Active Families is a free programme that helps you and your children create a healthier lifestyle by becoming more active and learning about healthy eating.

Our team of Healthy Lifestyles Co-ordinators help your family to set goals and get involved in fun physical activities that you can enjoy together. 

Healthy eating advice will be offered and in certain areas, you have the chance to meet and have fun with other children and families who are also part of the programme at weekly activity sessions.

We want to support children and their families who are ready for change to be healthier and to have fun together. Active children have more energy, feel stronger, fitter and more confident, sleep better, and are able to concentrate and participate more fully in school activities and grow into healthier adults.
