Welcome to RBC Race for the Kids
Since starting as a single Race in New York in 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown into a series of 30+ events that take place around the world. Altogether, 325,000+ participants have raised more than $74 million CAD for youth charities.
COVID-19 meant the 2020-21 program was at risk with the majority of events facing cancellation. Meanwhile, the need from charities – particularly those focused on youth mental health – was greater than ever before. So we adapted and introduced the RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids weekend, welcoming new markets and charity partners, and raising $17M to support youth across our global footprint.
This year, RBC Race for the Kids will offer a hybrid format which includes virtual and in-person races throughout the year. Check out our Global Events section below and register now!
