ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A GOOD EXCUSE TO GET UP, GET CREATIVE AND HAVE SOME FUN?

Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham and Northumberland is encouraging you 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 homemade bowling alley, bowl, and raise funds in support of local children and youth.

As with many charities, Big Brothers Big Sisters' fundraising efforts have been impacted by COVID-19.  Most of our 2020 Bowl for Kids' Sake events were cancelled or postponed and our annual Pitch-In Softball Tournament normally held in June has be cancelled altogether. 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.
