Mentoring Matters

Our mission of creating and supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships to ignite the power and promise of youth does not decrease because of a pandemic. In fact, the stresses that our children are facing in the midst of this national emergency have only increased the need for connection with a mentor. The Daffodil Run for Big Brothers Big Sisters is the program’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and we count on the revenue from this event to continue our service to our kids, their families, and their mentors. We are asking for your help in making this event as successful as ever!

We invite you to share this event page with your networks all over the world in an effort to raise as much as possible for our program.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Event Sponsorships opportunities are available! Please consider becoming a sponsor of the 2022 Daffodil Run! More information about sponsorship levels is available at this link.
