Gabby Logan and GOSH patients officially launch RBC Race for the Kids in Hyde Park

GOSH patients help launch RBC Race for the Kids 2017 with Bernard Bear and Gabby Logan
Presenter Gabby Logan joined patients from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), their families, and employees from Royal Bank of Canada to officially launch this year’s RBC Race for the Kids fun run in Hyde Park.

Gabby met GOSH patients 14-year-old Dylan, eight-year-old Noah, and eight-year-old Phoebe, and their siblings, who led on a range of fun-filled exercises to celebrate the announcement of a new date and a new venue – London’s iconic Hyde Park – for this year’s RBC Race for the Kids. 

The summer holidays may be coming to an end, but signing up to RBC Race for the Kids is a great way for the whole family to keep fit and healthy over the autumn months. This year, the RBC Race for the Kids 5k family fun run is returning on Saturday 7 October. It’s expected to be the biggest yet, helping to raise even more money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. 

Supported by Royal Bank of Canada for the eighth year running, this inclusive fun run will see children, parents and grandparents run, walk, scoot, wheel or jog around the accessible 5k course in support of GOSH. Participants of all ages and abilities can join individually or in teams, taking in beautiful views of Hyde Park as they go, and with post-race activities and entertainment, it a great day out for all.

Gabby Logan said: “It was amazing to start the countdown to this year’s RBC Race for the Kids fun run and to meet such an inspirational group of children who have been treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital and fantastic fundraisers from Royal Bank of Canada. I have taken part with my own two children before and I know what a special day it is. I would urge everyone to sign up!”

Tim Johnson, Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity said: “RBC Race for the Kids is a very special event and this year we are really looking forward to hosting our inclusive fun run in London’s iconic Hyde Park. I would encourage everyone to take on the challenge and join us on Saturday 7 October to jog, walk or wheel their way around the course. All the money raised will make a vital difference to seriously ill children from across the UK.”
