Move For Kids Sake
Stay Active. Stay Engaged. Stay Healthy… all while supporting young people in your community.
BBBSY is launching their Move for Kids Sake running Feb 15th to March 31st and we are partnering with agencies across Ontario to get our province moving and keeping them healthy. A great way to challenge your staff (and their families or partners at home) to get moving too! What do we mean by moving? Commit to stretching 5 minutes a day, do some jumping jacks, have a dance party. Whatever your activity is – just set a goal and stick to it! Then decide on your fundraising goal! Will you complete 20 jumping jacks for every $20, stretch for every $1 raised or are you a dare devil and will you embrace the cold and run 1KM for every $20 raised?
The choice is up to you but we hope you will Move with US for the Sake of kids in your community.
Move For Kids Sake is a pledge based event. You create a fundraising page, set a goal and decide what activity you will do to do in exchange for donations. We hope we can count on your support! No goal is too low, it’s all about getting moving, getting involved, being creative and supporting the incredible difference that mentors have in the lives of our young people, now more than ever! #StayingConnected
Join us in “Exercising the right of all children to reach their potential”
During this time of social distancing, it is more important than ever that we protect and support meaningful mentoring relationships for young people in York Region. We are committed to continuing our work and finding new ways to deliver life changing, developmental relationships that foster resilience in the face of adversity. We know that exposure at a young age to adversities like trauma, mental health, abuse and loss of a parent can negatively affect the developing brains and bodies of children and youth. Safe and caring relationships are a powerful force in combating these negative effects. This is why Big Brothers Big Sisters is working hard to keep all of our matches connected virtually, as well as create new online matches between volunteers and children in the community.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make our Move for Mentoring event a tremendous success in 2020!
