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

Advancing pediatric cancer care worldwide

Specializing in kids. Specializing in cancer. Within Memorial Sloan Kettering, we’re a multidisciplinary center of excellence for treating kids and young adults with cancer, as well as immune deficiencies and benign blood disorders. Did you know our doctors and staff care for more pediatric patients with different types of cancer than any other center in the United States? We see more rare cancers in a single day than most physicians see in a lifetime. With this deep focus entirely on kids and cancer, our staff can give each patient the most accurate diagnosis and the best possible care.

Pioneering new treatments for all. Every member of our clinical team contributes to groundbreaking research that opens up more treatment options and sets new standards of care at MSK Kids and beyond. Our teams have developed treatments where there previously were none. Alongside other leading institutions, we are pursuing the next frontier of therapies and approaches to support people facing pediatric cancer around the world.

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.
