Parafed Wellington
Inspire, Enable, Achieve

Welcome to Parafed Wellington


At Parafed Wellington we inspireenable and achieve.


We do this through our members and supporters being involved in sporting, 

recreation or leisure opportunities.  

We work with a range of organisations and partners to make our members 

sporting and recreational lives as great as possible.   


Round the Bays 2018

Good luck to our members who are participating in the 2018 Round the Bays on Saturday 18 February.  If you are out and about around the course, as a participant, marshal or supporter, give a big Shout Out for our Parafed Wellington members and also those from Achilles International.



Weetbix Try Wellington

Again Parafed Wellington has entered a team into the Weetbix Try in Wellington.  It is so great to see the numbers of young members registering for this event increasing every year.  It's all happening on Sunday 18 March at Kilbirnie Park.  The team would love to see supporters cheering them on during the event so if you have some time to spare on that Sunday morning, drop down to Kilbirnie Park and give them a big Shout Out.
