The RBC Race for the Kids will be held on Sept. 15 at Mel Lastman Square. More than 8,500 participants will be taking part in a five-kilometre walk/run; seven-kilometre run; and 15-kilometre run.

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and RBC have partnered to host the event, which raises funds for the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook.
The program helps families who have a young person (aged 13–26) struggling with mental health and/or addiction find the support they need by partnering with professionals who guide them to the specialized care they need.
