2014 Community Carnival the most successful in history
A record 300,087 children have experienced Rugby League's powerful "Tackle Bullying" program as part of the 2014 Community Carnival delivered at 899 schools in more than 400 towns across Australia and New Zealand over the past six weeks.
The game's most successful Community Carnival kicked off in late January with the Dragons visiting schools in their local area of Kiama and wound up this week with Ambassadors visiting more than 5,000 children in Perth.
The program, the largest of its kind in Australian sport, also received endorsement last month by US experts at the National Bullying Prevention Centre in Minnesota and by Australian organisation, the Alannah and Madeline Foundation in Melbourne.
During the six-week 2014 campaign, Ambassadors and players from all 16 NRL Clubs covered more than 20,800km, with highlights including:
"We're extremely proud of all of the hard work and effort the players, Ambassadors, Development Officers, NRL Clubs and the One Community team have dedicated to this year's Community Carnival," said NRL Community, Culture and Diversity Interim General Manager, Mr Mark Deweerd.
"It's been our widest reaching campaign to date and we hope to have made a tangible impact on reducing bullying in schools across the country."
