No Bowling Pins, No Problem!

Use bottles, cans, toilet paper rolls...Line 'em up and Strike 'em Down!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham and Northumberland is encouraging you to BOWL AT HOME FOR KIDS' SAKE

This is a simple and fun way to make a difference in our community. Participants will challenge themselves (and each other) to create a bowling alley, bowl, and raise funds to support local children.

Like many charities, Big Brothers Big Sisters' fundraising efforts have been impacted by COVID-19. OPG Bowl for Kids' Sake, Pitch-In Softball Tournament along with other fundraising events have been cancelled.

Yet the potential of young people is strong and they need our support now more than ever. Now is the time to focus on children's mental, emotional, and physical health and wellbeing. We must protect them from COVID-19 while at the same time keeping them safe from the toxic stress and adversities that are intensifying in many Canadian homes due to social isolation.

All funds raised will directly support the vulnerable children in our programs, supporting them to cope with the challenges ahead!
