Welcome to RBC Race for the Kids
What started as a single Race in New York in 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown into a series of 25+ family fun races that take place around the world. More than 360,000 participants have raised over $82 million CAD for youth charities across the globe.
This year, you can participate one of two ways!
- Sign up for the live in-person RBC Race for the Kids event in your community
- Or sign up for the virtual RBC Race for the Kids Weekend on October 14-15, joining participating communities where no in-person events are taking place
Either way you, and your friends and family, can support a local youth charity and be part of RBC Race for the Kids.
Learn more about the races and register today!
