2016 was the first ever RBC Race for the Kids event in Kuala Lumpur, raising RM 200,000 for RMHC Malaysia to build a Ronald McDonald Sensory Room at two centres in the Klang Valley. More than 1,500 people walked or jogged the 5km through the beautiful Perdana Botanical Gardens and enjoyed the post-finish line family festival packed full of entertainment for everyone.
Continuing the success story, RBC Race for the Kids Kuala Lumpur 2017 is looking to raise more funds, setting the target at RM 90,000, to support RMHC Malaysia in building a third Sensory Room at Sekolah Semangat Maju Taiping (SSMT) which cares for children with learning disabilities, Autism, Down’s Syndrome and Cerebal Palsy.
Last year, RBC Race for the Kids took place in more than 15 locations including London, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Sydney, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur, attracting more than 124,000 global participants. Since its launch in New York in 2008, RBC Race for the Kids has raised over US$27 million for children’s charities around the globe. Check out rbcraceforthekids.com for more details.
