RBC Race for the Kids, October 17-18, 2020
Global Virtual Race supporting youth charities around the world

Help us save kids' lives!

Nationally recognized by the U.S. News & World Report, the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital is a state-of-the-art children's hospital dedicated to finding answers to the most difficult medical cases. Our physicians and scientists are driven to make transformative discoveries and create the innovations in pediatric medicine that are continually shaping national standards of care and improving lives of children everywhere.

Now more than ever, funding is needed for groundbreaking research to help kids at Comer Children’s and beyond. Every year, the RBC Race for the Kids at Comer Children’s raises essential funds to support pediatric research in projects from asthma to cancer. In addition, this year, the race will support a community project that continues to close the gap in healthcare disparities among children of color in our community. Help us create a brighter future for kids and make a donation today!

RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids, supporting youth
charities around the world

Over the past decade, the RBC Race for the Kids series has grown to include 17 charitable events raising more than $57 million for our local charity partners. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic means most of our physical Races can’t happen so welcome to the first ever RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids. Our ambition is to create the world’s biggest, virtual family fun run in support of over 30 youth charities to help them continue their incredible work at this challenging time.
