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.
