What to expect at RBC Race for the Kids

Set among the autumn leaves of Hyde Park, our family festival and fun run is the perfect day out for all ages and abilities.

In 2023, we had live entertainment – including performances from the Spirit Young Performers Company and the team at Butlin’s – an eclectic mix of fabulous family activities and even a few famous faces.

Fundraising tips

We ask that everyone taking part in RBC Race for the Kids raises as much as they can to help us build a new Children's Cancer Centre at GOSH.

Listed below are some of our top fundraising tips.

  • Set up a fundraising page and edit your fundraising target. We recommend a target of £150.

  • Personalise your page. Share your story and why you are taking part in RBC Race for the Kids and fundraising for GOSH Charity.

  • Share the link to your fundraising page with friends, family, and colleagues on WhatsApp, email and/or on your social media channels.

  • Make it a team effort. Invite people to your team and enjoy fundraising together.

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, which 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.
