In Germany, too many children and families still live in poverty. We want to change that! We help children and their parents with seemingly simple means, such as free lunch, free homework supervision and tutoring or conversations and advice. But even these simple means must be financed. Therefore we need your help.
Our ambition is to create the biggest virtual family fun run in the world as a way to profile RBC’s global reach, culture of delivering social impact and Race history since 2009. This global movement will unite colleagues, families, friends and clients behind a single cause - our communities - with a focus on youth mental and physical health. This campaign will demonstrate the authenticity of RBC’s purpose through action.

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.
