Bowl for Kids Sake changes to Move for Kids Sake during COVID

By Lindsay Advocate

Bowl for Kids Sake has been part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kawartha LakesHaliburton for 39 years. This year things need to look different.

In response to COVID-19, we have creatively transitioned our signature Bowl for Kids Sake to Move for Kids Sake.

While we are all working hard at staying healthy by social distancing, we may find ourselves going a little stir-crazy; this event will help. We encourage everyone to get up and move! Participants will challenge themselves (and each other) to be active and, in doing so, raise pledges in support of young people in our community.

Register as a team or individual, choose an activity or two, get your pledges, share pictures and videos as you complete your activities and use our hashtag #MFKS2021. Support Big Brothers Big Sisters Kawartha Lakes – Haliburton well raising awareness of the tremendous impact mentoring makes. Registration starts on March 1 and will run to April 5.

The funds raised through this event remain in our community to support one-to-one mentoring programs that help children reach their full potential. The Social Return on Investment is $18 for every dollar raised through this event.

“We are disappointed that we won’t be able to host Bowl for Kids Sake this year. Move for Kids Sake will offer everyone a new and exciting way to get active and support Big Brothers Big Sisters. I am looking forward to seeing the creative ways people participate,” says Janice Balfour, the executive director of BBBSKLH.
