Join the RBC Race for the Kids for fitness, fun and fundraising

Start line pictureFrom fitness enthusiasts to fun-seekers, the RBC Race for the Kids is the fundraising event for all to enjoy. The fun 5km race takes place in London’s beautiful Battersea Park on Sunday 9 June and will raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

Ideal for families, friends and colleagues, the race is suitable for all ages and abilities and participants can run, walk or jog individually or in teams. Everyone can get involved, from kids to grandparents, and fundraisers are invited to make a day of it with post-race activities and entertainment for all.

The unique event, supported by RBC for the fourth year running, is the charity’s flagship mass participation event and aims to raise essential funds for the redevelopment of the hospital. The new facilities will enable the hospital to treat more children and give researchers and clinical staff the resources they need to develop new treatments.

The RBC Race for the Kids website has plenty of fundraising tips, plus training advice for those looking for a more challenging experience.

Heather Gillespie from Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity says: “We’re thrilled to be once again holding the RBC Race for the Kids. The money raised will help us make a real difference for patients and families from across the UK, supporting the much needed redevelopment of the hospital.”

“The RBC Race for the Kids is a fantastic family fun run, with people of all ages and abilities getting involved. Sign up now and join in the fun!”
