Join us for the ChildFund Rugby Long Lunch – hosted by ChildFund Australia on Friday 9 September, 2022.
Following a hugely successful partnership for the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan where rugby fans and commercial partners around the globe pledged more than $3.5 million, ChildFund is delighted to share our appointment as the first ever Principal Charity Partner for the Rugby World Cup 2021, taking place in New Zealand in October. We are particularly honoured to be supporting global efforts to encourage and advocate for women’s participation in sports through this partnership, alongside promoting sport as a means of empowerment, community, and development.
ChildFund Rugby Long Lunch – hosted by ChildFund Australia
Date: Friday 9 September 2022
Venue: Establishment Ballroom, 252 George Street, Sydney
Race to Rugby World Cup 2021
We will be joined by special guests and South African cycling enthusiasts Ron Rutland and Adam Nunn who will be arriving in Sydney as a part of their Race to Rugby World Cup tour, an epic quest to cycle 16,500km from Tokyo to Auckland to deliver the whistle for the opening match of Rugby World Cup 2021, playing in 2022, and raise funds for the event’s Principal Charity Partner ChildFund Rugby.
The adventure, which is being supported by Rugby World Cup 2021 Worldwide Partner DHL and World Rugby, kicks off on 14 March at Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo. The pair will travel through 14 nations across 210 days, arriving in New Zealand just ahead of the opening match at Eden Park between South Africa and France on 8 October.
Follow their journey and join us to hear more about their gruelling but inspiring bike ride!
