The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital is built upon a rich tradition of excellence in pediatric care, deeply impacting the patients and families we serve. The hospital serves families as close as Hyde Park and as far away as China. Your participation or sponsorship will enable us to continue to provide the best possible care for all of our small patients.
Join us in making a difference in the lives of children who receive care at the forefront of medicine at Comer Children's Hospital. Contributions from the race fund research by some of the most talented physicians in the country, allowing us to provide the best possible care for our youngest patients. In the 2013 race, 1,700 participants helped raise more than $300,000 to support the research efforts of University of Chicago medical students and research fellows, whose discoveries could lead to breakthroughs in pediatric care around the world.
The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital is honored to partner with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) as the title sponsor of the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital RBC Race for the Kids, formerly known as the Comer Kids' Classic. This race is the newest of RBC's Race for the Kids events taking place around the globe, including New York, Hong Kong, London, and Toronto-each benefiting a local charity related to kids and wellness.
For the past ten years, the Comer Kids' Classic 5K Run/Walk has been a mainstay for the running community, Hyde Park, and the University of Chicago. We are thrilled to embark on this new partnership with RBC to increase the event's funding impact on our life-saving pediatric research programs.
The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital RBC Race for the Kids is a USATF- and CARA-certified, chip-timed race in beautiful Hyde Park. Participants can also walk the 5K course. Following the 5K Run/Walk, there is the Kids' Dash for participants six years of age and under and the Kids’ Mile, a one-mile, chip-timed race suggested for children in kindergarten through 8th grade.
