BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s RBC Race for the Kids is going virtual again this year and registration is now open.

With over 2,500 registrants, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is designed to promote physical and mental wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Leading up to the virtual race, an additional month-long activities calendar will give registrants access to dance parties and workouts with RBC Olympians.

Registrants who register by Monday, May 24th will also receive a race-day package filled with items to help recreate the race experience at home, like their very own finish banner and medal.

The community has rallied together through the race—raising an extraordinary $15 million to improve the lives of our province’s kids and families.

For over 30 years, RBC has been a proud supporter of BC Children’s Hospital, and Victoria resident AJ Delisle, RBC Community Manager, personally knows the importance of the BC Children’s Hospital.

“My daughter, Ophelia, was born with Bartter Syndrome, a rare kidney condition. Without the hospital as part of my extended family, Ophelia wouldn’t be the happy three-year-old she is today—and for that, we are truly grateful,” said Delisle.

Choose to run, walk or stroll for as long as you like—it’s up to you!
