RBC Race for the Kids is part of Royal Bank of Canada’s (RBC) “Kids Pledge,” which is a five-year, $100 million commitment to improve the wellbeing of 1 million children and young people. Last year, the race 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.
RBC supports a wide range of programs that address the needs of the ‘whole’ child – mind, body and spirit—so that all children have a chance to reach their potential someday.
