Go for Green. RBC Race for the Kids Sydney

RBC Race for the Kids returned to Sydney for the fifth year where over 700 participants came together to fundraise sustainably.  The runners, joggers and walkers enjoyed the beauty of Sydney Park’s 2km and 5km routes.  We helped raise A$109,910 for Ronald McDonald House Charities Sydney (RMHCS), totaling over A$220,000 over two years.  On a global basis, RBC support Ronald McDonald House in Canada, Malaysia, the UK and the US through many charity programs.

The focus was not only on raising funds for RMHCS but also on reducing waste and encouraging the use of reusable and recyclable resources.  RBC partnered with Sydney Water with an aim to reduce the requirement for single use plastic water bottles.  Reusable water bottles were distributed and Sydney Water provided two refillable water stations dispensing fresh tap water for all attendees.  

We thank everyone who took part in the event.  Looking forward to our continued partnership with RMHCS and RBC Race for the Kids in 2020.
