The Kilometres for KidsCan fundraiser is an event held by schools across New Zealand. They hold a fun run and their students raise money for KidsCan, to help other kids in need.
In 2019, Deanwell School year 4 student Himaani Vrinda Devi was New Zealand's top individual fundraiser for Kilometres for KidsCan, raising an incredible $5,500!
Himaani made a campaign video with her Dad, and asked all her family and friends for donations. Deanwell School is supported by KidsCan, so Himaani had seen first-hand the difference KidsCan makes.
In an emotional speech after her run, Himaani said: “At my school I learn Mahi Ngatahi – working together, helping and caring for each other. I am a Kiwi kid. I want to help KidsCan support all needy Kiwi kids to get an equal chance at at good education."
