Running for youth mental health
September 11th at 8.45 am
The 2022 RBC Race for the Kids will be held at Heritage Park on Sunday, September 11 and we’re excited to have you join us!
The generosity shown by RBC, our sponsors and our community has been amazing, with over $2M raised in five years in support of child and adolescent mental health. What an incredible show of support for thousands of kids every year — as well as the young people who will also benefit for generations to come.
Register for the in-person Race and receive a Race T-shirt, free parking and all-day access to Heritage Park as well as all the fun we have planned for after you’ve completed your kilometres, including a pancake breakfast! Virtual registrants can also receive a Race T-shirt when they raise $50 or more through their fundraising!
