Road Closure Notice: 2018 RBC Race for the Kids

CNW Group - Wed Sep 12, 8:00AM CDT

The RBC Race for the Kids will be held on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Mel Lastman Square. More than 8,500 participants will be taking part in a 5km walk/run, 7km run, and 15km run.

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and RBC have partnered to host the event, which raises funds for the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook. This unique program helps families who have a young person (aged 13 - 26) struggling with mental health and/or addiction find the support they need by partnering them with professionals that guide them to the specialized care they need.

The race will result in rolling lane closures in the following locations:
