BENEFITING: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area
Connor O'Gara wrote -Our family is excited to join the Big Brothers & Big Sisters Bay Area for the 2nd Annual Coasting for Kids' Sake Walk-a-thon. We are walking the glorious San Francisco coastline from Land's End to Crissy Field to raise awareness and funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area. It costs $2500 for our professionally trained staff to create a match between a Big and a Little, and $1500 per year to maintain each match. We hope to raise 6,000 as part of the event goal of $250,000: enough to pay for 100 Littles to be matched.
Once matched, 100% of Littles improve their grades, 96% are less likely to resort to violence to solve conflicts, 74% improve their future outlook, and almost 50% are less likely to use drugs than their peers.
