Sir Owen Glenn has announced a new legacy project which will see more children around the country inspired to get involved in sport.
The ‘Sir Owen Glenn Olympic Legacy’ will support a series of youth focused leadership initiatives run by the New Zealand Olympic Committee.
One of the initiatives set to benefit is the New Zealand Olympic Ambassadors programme, which sees past and present Olympians share their stories with school children around the country. It is one of several New Zealand Olympic education programmes that will receive a huge boost from Sir Owen’s $3 million legacy donation.
