Register Today for the Great Big Challenge

This January, many of us will try our best to hit the gym, take more walks, or pull the bike out of the garage to get fit and make good on our resolutions. Your workout will do even more good this year when you join Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Great Big Challenge.

Great Big Challenge is a fun, month-long fitness and fundraising event and supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters this National Mentoring Month. Participants will choose a fitness goal and a fundraising goal that work for them, and get fit while helping make sure more children get matched with caring adult volunteers in the new year.

One of the top Great Big Challenge fundraisers so far, a Big Brother named Phil, says his motivation is his relationship with his Little, Avril. “We’ve spent a lot of time together biking, hiking, wall-climbing, going to baseball/football games – generally hanging out.   This month we are working together to get Avril his first job (his choice).  As a Big it is very rewarding,” Big Brother Phil says. Now, Phil wants to get back into working out. While working on that resolution, he is also spreading the word about Big Brothers Big Sisters and raising money to make sure more Littles like Avril have a Big who will make a difference for them.

Register today at, choose your physical challenge — walking, biking, practicing yoga, swimming — any fitness goal that you want to achieve — and your fundraising goal, and get started on your resolutions to get fit and do good.
