Join the RBC Race for the Kids for fitness, fun and fundraising this summer

Race for the Kids 2012 start line

Be part of something amazing this June and run, walk or jog 5km to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.

The RBC Race for the Kids is a 5km fun run and is ideal for families, friends and colleagues. It takes place in London’s beautiful Battersea Park on Sunday 9 June 2013.

Everyone can get involved - from kids to grandparents - and fundraisers are invited to make a day of it with post-race activities and entertainment for all.

The event, supported by Royal Bank of Canada for the fourth year running, will raise essential funds for the redevelopment of Great Ormond Street Hospital. The new facilities will enable the hospital to treat more children and give researchers and clinical staff the resources they need to develop new treatments.

Heather Gillespie from Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity says: “We’re thrilled to be once again holding the RBC Race for the Kids. The money raised will help us make a real difference for patients and families from across the UK.

“It's a fantastic family day out, with people of all ages and abilities getting involved. Sign up now and join in the fun!”
