About Children's Hospital

For nearly a hundred years, Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre has been providing expert care to the most medically complex and critically ill paediatric patients from across Western Ontario. It is one of Canada’s largest acute care centres. Every year, more than 56,000 children count on the hospital for its specialized medical expertise.

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.

Mental health needs for our children and youth are increasing because of the pandemic. Funding for mental health care is just as important as ever!

Your support will ensure access to critical mental health resources for youth facing anxiety, depression, or trauma – especially now when stress is at an all-time high.
