BENEFITING: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Apr 24, 2016
This is my 30th year of supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters! WOW! In some ways time has flown by, in others it feels like it was a long time ago that we only served 60 children in a year. Today we are serving over 600 in a year! What's even more important is that those youth who have a mentor will have an experience that will change their lives for the better, forever. They will be more likely to avoid risky behavior, graduate high school and even attend college. There are not many social service programs out there that can say the same thing! I am proud of our organization but most of all I am proud of our Little Brothers and Little Sisters. They are awesome! They are Superheroes!!
I hope you think so too, or at least take my word for it ;-). Please consider making a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters through my participation in Run4Kids. We are hoping to raise over $50,000 this year. Personally, I hope to be able to raise $3,000+ through my very generous friends, family, and colleagues. You are all Superheroes!
You can truly make it possible for a child to leave poverty behind. (Did you know 86% of the youth in our program live below the poverty line?) You can also make a child feel confident in the abilities and see a future that includes success. (In 2015, over 90% of our Littles had a strong sense of self confidence!) They can't do it alone. They need a Superhero like YOU! THANK YOU!!!
