Big Brothers Big Sisters BIG Walk is a family-friendly event that unites the community by raising awareness and support for the important role mentoring plays in our community. The 2-mile walk along the beautiful Causeway will allow people to take a journey with friends and family while honoring the mentors in their lives and inspiring others to join our efforts. With children’s activities, entertainment, refreshments, and more-there is something for everyone to enjoy!
The BIG Walk is Big Brothers Big Sisters newest fundraiser. It is a walking event with the goal of raising $100,000 to create and support 200 new matches. Because of The BIG Walk, more Bigs and Littles will be matched, more friendships can be created and improved outlooks on life can be started.
The BIG Walk is a fun and easy way to positively impact a child's life. Just follow the simple steps below:
1) Register to walk. Commit to raising $500 to support a new match. Ask family, friends, or co-workers to consider giving a little to support a Little!
2) Tell your match story. As we all know, we often feel we get more than we give after time with our Littles. Others deserve to share in this amazing experience we call a "match." Hopefully your story will inspire others to Start Something BIG!
3) Put your walking shoes on! After you have raised your $500, it's time to have fun! The walk begins and ends at the Bluegill on the Causeway. Start time is around 9:00 am. Once we walk, it's fun and entertainment for all!Costumes optional.
So what are you waiting for?
