How your fundraising will help

Over the last 13 years, RBC Race for the Kids has raised more than £9 million for the children and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). This year, we’re hoping to raise over £1 million to help build the new Children’s Cancer Centre at GOSH and save more children’s lives – but we can only do that with your incredible support!

Every week, around five children in the UK lose their lives to cancer. That’s five families who are faced with the worst news possible. GOSH cares for children with the hardest to treat cancers.

We’re already pushing the boundaries. Pioneering research is underway to find the most effective treatments and cures, which give hope to children and their families.

But these advances have outstripped GOSH’s current cancer care facilities, and the hospital needs a new home to help deliver breakthrough therapies which will benefit children from all over the world.

A place designed with the needs of children at its heart. A place that will support every aspect of care, from diagnosis to remission and beyond. The money raised from RBC Race for the Kids will help build a new world-class centre that will treat the child, not just their disease. A gateway for children to go on to better futures, where they not only survive, but flourish.

Together we can build it. Together we can help beat childhood cancer.
