RBC Race for the Kids

We hope this update finds you and your families safe and well.

To ensure the safety of our team, volunteers and supporters as well as the children, families and care providers within the hospital, and with the current gathering recommendations in place, we have made the decision to postpone RBC Race for the Kids until 2021. While we are unable to gather at Heritage Park this September for the race, we can still take collective steps toward better mental health for kids and families in our community.

We are so grateful for mental health champions like you and we hope you’ll join us to raise awareness of mental health and the vital services that are needed now more than ever!

Stay tuned to our channels for more ways we can all stand together on race weekend this September for child and adolescent mental health. You can also show your support today with a donation:






Your generosity will fund vital research and programs at the new Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health when it opens in late 2021.

Thanks to RBC, this amazing community, our vendors, volunteers and sponsors, we are very pleased to report that in three short years the RBC Race for the Kids in Calgary has raised more than $1 million for critical mental health initiatives for children and youth! It's an incredible show of support for thousands of kids every year and will benefit generations to come.

Once again, thank you for your enthusiasm and support, we are incredibly grateful.

If you have questions, would like to get involved, or would like any further information, please contact Catherine Feenstra, Manager, Community Initiatives & Events, at

Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health update

Thanks to our partners who share the vision for enhanced child mental health services, construction of Calgary’s new Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health continues to forge ahead to help kids and families in our community. With enhanced safety measures in place, progress on the build moves steadily ahead.







In these times, many Albertans are understandably feeling unsettled. Now more than ever, children and teenagers need strong support from their families, loved ones and the community to work through these challenges in the weeks and months ahead.

That’s why the Foundation partnered with Alberta Health Services and other like-minded charities across the province to launch Text4Hope an evidence-based text messaging service to help people work through their stress and anxiety and build resilience. It’s a free service and thousands of Albertans have already signed up.
