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 5k anywhere you like - from your own garden, in the local park or around your neighbourhood.

Do your 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 a new world-class children's cancer centre, that will treat the child, not just their disease. It will be a gateway for children to go on to better futures, where they not only survive, but flourish.

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

All the funds raised will go towards the development of cancer care at Great Ormond Street Hospital. In the event that costs change, or the needs of the hospital or patients change, we reserve the right to redirect funds for use against the hospital’s most urgent needs.
