7–8 April 2022
Rugby legend and UNICEF Aotearoa Ambassador Dan Carter has launched the DC10 Fund, in partnership with UNICEF. On 7th–8th April Dan will be returning to Eden Park to kick for 24-hours straight, to raise money for UNICEF’s work to provide essential clean water and sanitation for children in the Pacific.
Across the Pacific, water and sanitation-related diseases are one of the leading causes of death for children under the age of five. UNICEF is working in some of the most remote and challenging areas to deliver clean water and sanitation to 134,000 children in Kiribati, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
The 24-hour Kickathon will support UNICEF to give these children in the Pacific the best start to life.Donate Now
Following his retirement, Dan’s fans have been eager to see him back on the field. However, Dan’s future focus is on leadership—mentoring the younger generation and generally being more philanthropic.
Continuing with his partnership with UNICEF, Dan is taking things a step further by setting up his own fund in collaboration with the organisation.Donate Now
Funds raised during the Kickathon will help UNICEF continue their life changing projects designed to provide disaster-resilient clean water and sanitation to children and communities in Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Kiribati. Approximately 134,000 children, 830 schools and 38 health facilities in the Pacific will benefit from UNICEF’s water and sanitation interventions and better hygiene behaviour - leaving the kids there with better health and more time to play.
Thanks to funds raised by the DC10 fund corporate partners, UNICEF will develop a range of teaching resources and toolkits, which will be rolled out in early childhood centres, primary and secondary schools. Over the next four years, UNICEF Aotearoa New Zealand aims to reach over 300,000 children, teachers and parents, plus 500 schools.
