Dave Shaw

Dave Shaw has been involved with Special Olympics New Zealand for decades in a committee and managerial capacity, and in support of his two children who train and compete in golf and aquatics with the organisation.

Dave is very well networked in the community and has used these connections to his advantage in recruiting support for Special Olympics New Zealand. His family are regular fixtures at fundraising ventures around the regions, including regular BBQs and sausage sizzles. A recent dinner and auction he helped organise raised $4500 to assist athletes attend the Special Olympics New Zealand National Summer Games 2013. At the event athletes rubbed shoulders with business people from a range of different sectors and were able to provide the community with a real insight into the organisation.
Dave is motivated completely by promoting the interests and successes of Special Olympics’ athletes. He will drive athletes to and from training and ribbon days, organise media to run a story about an athlete’s success or to promote an upcoming event, and is always happy to hand out fliers. He is always a vocal cheerleader on the sidelines at events celebrating the achievements of the athletes competing.
Over the years Dave has been a strong advocate for our athletes, including assisting in negotiations around fees for the swimming pool and golf club where the athletes train.
Ever humble, Dave remains more concerned with the successes of the athletes and volunteers than receiving accolades himself.
