The funds will go to Kannerhaus Jean Therapy Centre, where it “will help improve the lives of children who show signs of psychological suffering that can lead to behavioural difficulties,” according to the organisers’ press release issued on 22 October.
More than 1,300 runners participated in the 5km fun run, including employees of RBC’s office in Belval, their family and friends.
It was the third edition of the fundraiser in the grand duchy. RBC sponsors Race for the Kids events in many of the places where it has major operations, including Hong Kong, New York City and Toronto. The press release stated that, altogether since 2008, the runs have raised more than €20m for local children’s charities.
