The event was held under a “Back to the 80’s” theme with local businesses and children taking part. Five schools participated in the school challenge with Bert Ambrose Elementary raising just under $2,000.

Next for Big Brothers Big Sisters is the Rooftop Challenge in September which is their group’s annual recruitment for volunteers. Members of Big Brothers Big Sisters will be camping at the top of the North Peace Leisure Pool for 36 hours or until they receive 25 volunteer inquiries.
