RBC Race for the Kids


Since its inception in 1986, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s signature run, and largest family fun run in Vancouver, has raised over $13 million in support of childhood cancer research and treatment and, as of 2016, pediatric mental health initiatives. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate and to start their own fundraising page to help raise much-needed funds and awareness for child health in BC.
