The NZ Rugby Foundation is a welfare organisation that provides support in terms of injury prevention, player welfare and care of catastrophically injured rugby players.

The foundation was formed in December 1986 by the late Kel Tremain. Initially, the objectives were broad in terms of “supporting rugby in need.”  25 years later, this has become very focused on the area of injury in rugby.

What Ever It Takes has been actively working with the NZ Rugby Foundation particularly in some of it’s events such as the Wellington Sevens..
