The Stellar Smash is a charity cricket match event we are holding for the third year running, since our partnership with Cure Kids began in 2016. We have made this an annual event to raise funds for Cure Kids. We will have former Black Caps playing, along with other New Zealand sport celebrities. Richie McCaw is a shareholder of Stellar and is passionate about giving back to the community, which is one of our core values and will also be taking part in the day.

Cure Kids' mission is a healthy childhood for everyone.  Their purpose is simple: Every single day, our researchers are driven to find the cures for serious health conditions that affect thousands of Kiwi kids.  As an organisation Cure Kids focuses on raising funds to enable high-impact medical research to find the cures our kids need.  The breadth of the work supported is wide; some of the projects include childhood cancers, inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, and child and adolescent mental health, among many others. Cure Kids is the largest funder of research in New Zealand, outside of the government. 


Date: Friday 22nd March 2019

Time: From 3.00pm – 7.30pm

Where: Burnside West, Christchurch University Cricket Club, 340 Avonhead Road, Burnside, Christchurch
