The Big Little Challenge – March 8th to 28th
We can’t thank our fundraisers, sponsors and donors enough – The Big Little Challenge raised $53,419.30 and our teams completed a total of 420 Challenges!
Thanks for taking a chance on a brand new fundraiser and making it such a huge success!!
What is The Big Little Challenge?
We can’t hold Bowl for Kids Sake safely this year, but we didn’t want to lose the things we love – community spirit, chance to have fun….and of course fundraising for a great cause!
For 3 weeks in March, teams across PEI can have fun together while fundraising and completing 21 themed challenges which promote Mental Health & Well-Being, Life-Long Learning, and Community Involvement – outcomes of our mentoring programs.
Since Covid-19 has affected everyone in our community, we are going to focus on team fundraising instead of individual totals. Every team that raises $100 will have a chance to win the Staycation Prize Package…and the more you raise, the more you can win.
Each week, there will be a Signature Challenge that teams can compete against each other to win prizes for their creativity.…and the more challenges you complete, the more you can win. To make the challenges more meaningful, there are separate list for Work and Family & Friends teams.
The challenges are designed to be flexible so that teams can choose their own adventure, tailor the activities to the interests of their team, and be something teams can do together or apart. Check out the Work and Family & Friends Team Challenge sheets below to see which will work best for you, then register your team and we will deliver everything you need in a cool PEI Bag Co Bag.
March 8th – 14th: An Apple a Day – Mental Health and Well-Being Challenges
March 15th – 21st: March Forth – Trying New Things Challenges
March 22nd – 28th: Bigger Together – Making a Difference Challenges
Each week represents one of our 3 Big Outcomes, so participating will be a fun way to see the impact of your support.
WHAT DOES SUPPORTING THE BIG LITTLE CHALLENGE ACCOMPLISH?
Impact: When a child has a mentor, the odds they will be emotionally, socially & physically healthy increases dramatically…and when we have healthy young people in our communities, everyone benefits.
With Covid-19 related upheavals, there are more children facing increased anxiety and stress. Mentoring is an essential service we must continue to provide, but we need your help. The money you raise for The Big Little Challenge will help provide life-changing relationships for youth on PEI.
