The 2021 RBC Race for the Kids will be global and virtual on October 16-17 and we’re excited to have you join us!
The generosity shown by RBC, our sponsors and our community has been amazing, with more than $1.6M raised in just four short years in support of child and adolescent mental health. What an incredible show of support for thousands of kids every year that will also benefit generations to come.
THANKS TO OUR ADDITIONAL SPONSORS!

A Global, Virtual, Family Fun Run Supporting Youth Charities Around the World
Since 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown to an exciting series of 17 charitable Races taking around the world, supporting kids and youth-focused causes. In total, 290,000+ participants have raised more than C$65 million.
In 2020, the series of in-person Races couldn’t happen so we pivoted to a global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to continue raising much-needed funds for our charity partners. Last year, over 33,000 participants from 120+ countries raised more than C$8.8 million!
Join us and participants from all around the globe to raise awareness and support for our 35 charity partners in 19 countries – and the young people they help during this challenging time.
