On Your Marks, Get Set, Make A Difference!

If you love a good race and enjoy making a difference, this event is for you!

RBC and Youth INC (a local nonprofit that supports youth-serving organizations and helps over 600,000 kids a year) are co-hosting this year’s RBC Race for the Kids at 9 A.M. on October 1st at Brookfield Place.

This exciting day of athletic events — which include a 4K run, physical fitness team competition, multiple children’s races, a cycling tour and even a Kids Zone — will raise money for underserved youth in New York City. Last year, the event generated $1.7 million for New York City youth. Other nonprofits such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Ronald McDonald House NY will be taking part as well.

The family-friendly event is expected to attract more than 2,000 people. With over $1 million raised so far, RBC welcomes their neighbors to participate.

So get your game on for a worthy cause!
