RBC Race for the Kids

Make a difference for youth struggling with mental health and addiction challenges.

Since the first race over $20-million has been raised in support of Sunnybrook’s Family Navigation Project. Thanks to participants just like you, this unique program, the first-of-its-kind in Canada, has helped thousands of youth in our community, and their families, find the mental health services they needed.

But there’s still work to be done. Families need our help more than ever. As many as 1.2 million Canadian youth are struggling with mental illness and 30% of Ontario families are caring for at least one youth with mental illness and/or addiction.

By participating in RBC Race for the Kids, you’re helping change — and save — the lives of young people affected by mental illness and addiction. Whether you walk or run, your support will raise funds for Sunnybrook’s Family Navigation Project. Funded by generous donors like you, this innovative program guides youth and their families to the mental health services they need.

Learn more about youth mental health and why your support is so important.
