Take a step towards conquering childhood illnesses

On Sunday, June 12, go the distance for BC’s kids by running where you live. The 2022 RBC Race for the Kids will take place in two ways: run in your own home community, wherever you live across BC through our virtual race, or join live, in-person events located in Vancouver and Victoria.

While many strides have been made in improving children’s health care, we’ve only scratched the surface when it comes to taking on the biggest health threats facing our kids. From advancing care to improving survival rates, we’re working to break through the barriers that remain.

Every step you take can make a difference in the life of a child, and this year you can choose how you want to participate.

Ready to get involved? Here are a few things to know.

  • NEW THIS YEAR: Choose between joining us at our Vancouver or Victoria location or participate virtually
    • The Vancouver and Victoria location early bird registration fee for adults and children is $25 before April 15, and increases to $30 on April 16.
    • For virtual participants, pay a $30 registration fee.
    • For all participants who commit to fundraising a minimum amount of $50 per person by race day, the registration fee is waived.
  • All participants will receive a Race Day package*, which includes an exclusive RBC Race for the Kids t-shirt and medal, and other fun items to make race day one to remember
