Why Walk for the Kids?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC changes the lives of children and youth in our city through the power of mentoring. Every year, we help connect more than 5,000 Littles with a Big who can help them believe that their present situation doesn't have to be their future.
Our program reaches those who would benefit from being matched with a caring, adult mentor. Mentoring helps expand their horizons, and propels them to achieve educational and career success, and beyond! Our program has made a positive impact in the communities we serve since 1904, and we hope to continue doing so for many years to come!
As a team captain and member of the BBBS of NYC team, I am fundraising to continue providing our children and youth access to positive mentoring relationships that can change their lives for the better, forever! By donating to our team, you are helping our organization to support our Littles’ education through funding SAT prep classes, educational workshops, college tours/applications, and much more! With your generous contribution, we can continue making possible for 97% of our Littles to graduate from high school and move onto college thanks to our programming and support!
Register here to join our team, Emily R’s Shining Stars, and walk alongside BBBS of NYC, our amazing families, and amazing mentors in Prospect Park on September 15th! If you can’t join us on this fun-filled day, you can still make a positive impact by donating to help me reach my fundraising goal – Every dollar counts!
Please help us to continue supporting NYC children and youth, and make a difference in their futures!
