Dan Carter on rugby, France and charity project

By Heather du Plessis-Allan

Dan Carter has a job to do and it's not just being a World Cup-winning All Blacks first-five.

He's also trying to drum up interest in a whole new project for him – looking after teenagers with sporting dreams that they can't afford.

Carter's charity has been restructured and rebranded as the iSPORT Foundation, and targets helping Kiwi kids between 12 and 18 years old be the best they can be.

The charity is staging a major lunch event next Wednesday evening with a fundraising target of $200,000 – Vogels Presents an Evening with Richie McCaw and Dan Carter, on Wednesday August 26 at Vector Arena.

Tables and tickets are still available at the Duco website.

The iSPORT Foundation, established by McCaw, Carter and Ali Williams, works with schools and local, regional and national sporting bodies to identify individuals showing talent, and with teams that need a helping hand to give them an equal opportunity to succeed.

iSPORT provides the resources that may be needed, including meeting essential costs such as travel, accommodation, equipment, uniforms and competition fees. More information is available on the charity's website.
