RBC Race for the Kids at Home is a fundraising event for all ages and abilities.

Our fun run is the perfect opportunity to gather a team of friends and family, get outside in the fresh air, and raise vital funds for children with cancer. You can do your 2k or 5k anywhere you like - from your own garden, in the local park or around your neighbourhood.

Do your 2k or 5k wherever you want, however you want. Whether you run, walk, scoot or wheel, it's really easy to get involved! And all the money you raise will help GOSH Charity build a new Children's Cancer Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

How your support will help

The money raised from RBC Race for the Kids will help build the new Children's Cancer Centre at GOSH. A world-class facility with children at its heart.

A place where children have access to play and education alongside pioneering treatments. Where families can stay together through some of the hardest moments. Where access to outdoor space is a priority, and a focus on nutrition helps fuel recovery.

GOSH has a team of dedicated doctors, nurses and researchers who are specialists in the most complex childhood cancers. And there are architects and builders who can transform the hospital. Now we just need people like you.

Join us to help build the Children’s Cancer Centre at GOSH and save more lives.

Together, we can build it. Together, we can help beat childhood cancer.
