RBC Race for the Kids 2022
9 October, 2022 @ 5:30 am - 7:00 pm
The RBC Race for the Kids is a compelling series of global charitable runs supporting children’s causes that started in 2008 with an inaugural event in New York City. In addition to NYC, runs are also held in 15 major cities around the world, including Chicago, Minneapolis, Toronto, London, Hong Kong and Sydney. In the Caribbean, there are races in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.
The Trinidad and Tobago edition supports the RBC Caribbean Children’s Cancer Fund and assists Caribbean youth, under the age of 16, who have been diagnosed with cancer. It funds care, treatment and testing to fight the dreaded disease. To date, over 250 children have been treated.
Funds from the RBC Caribbean Children’s Cancer Fund supported a donation to the Eric Williams Medical Complex of a Flow Cytometer valued at TTD 2.5M. This machine increases survival rates as it more accurately diagnoses leukemia at an early stage.
