RBC Runs with Pride
Together with The Running Room, RBC Dominion Securities hosts the first RBC Run with Pride to kick off the 2017 London Pride Festival.
Our inaugural event inspired over 175 participants to take part in our 1km or 5km run at Wonderland Gardens on July 23rd, 2017. Mayor Matt Brown spoke in support of Pride within our London community.
RBC Run with Pride commenced with the presentation of our enormous rainbow flag, carried over to our starting area and the 1km was soon under way - the first to cross the finish line was Bennett Thomas, age 9 and son of Jessica Thomas, Assistant Branch Manager. Jonathan Somerville, Investment Advisor for RBC Dominion Securities, London was the first to cross the finish line for the 5km run.
Special thanks to our own Allison Blackshaw, Associate Advisor for her passion and time commitment to organize an event we should all be so proud of.
