The Big Brothers and Sisters of Fort St. John Roof Top challenge ended in record time Friday.

After only 12 hours Big Brothers and Sisters of Fort St. John was able to sign up 20 volunteers.  Those 20 volunteers will now go through the process of becoming a mentor to a child in Fort St. John and the North Peace.

If you would like to sign up to be a mentor, you still can.  Big Brothers and Sisters Volunteers will still be on hand Saturday at the North Peace Leisure Pool until 12pm. After that time you can always call 250-787-9674.

This year Big Brothers and Sisters of Fort St. John is celebrating 25 years in the community.   The organization also recently announced they would be expanding to provide services to the community of Dawson Creek in the coming months.
