BENEFITING: BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF NYC
ORGANIZER: BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF NYC
As you may know, I have been involved as a “big” for Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC for a year now. My “little” is one of the most resilient people I know; her strength and maturity make me forget that she is just 17 years old! I’ve seen her grades and her self confidence skyrocket during the past year - she is such an inspiration.
BBBS has been a wonderful source of guidance for her as she works toward becoming a college student. They’ve provided tutoring, SAT prep, and finally, they’ve supported me to be the best role model I can be. I’m so proud to run the 2017 NYC Marathon with Team BBBS, increasing awareness and raising money for this wonderful organization!
Thank you for supporting me during this journey! Every little bit helps, but if you’d like to know where your money is going:
$2,000 allows you to 'adopt a match' for one year.
$1,000 provides one year's worth of academic support for Littles.
$250 funds the cost of one comprehensive screening for a potential Big.
$100 supports the cost of our volunteer outreach and recruitment efforts to help us attract new mentors for children in need.
