ABOUT MOVE FOR MENTORING – PRESENTED BY MANITOBA EGG FARMERS  

Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg’s Move for Mentoring, presented by Manitoba Egg Farmers.  We hope you will join us and get moving to support mental health for young people in our community.  

In response to COVID-19, we have creatively transitioned our signature Bowl for Kids Sake event to this virtual fundraiser. 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 Winnipeg.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP!  

During this time of social distancing, it is more important than ever that we protect and support meaningful mentoring relationships for young people in Winnipeg. We are committed to continuing our work and finding new ways to deliver life changing, developmental relationships that foster resilience in the face of adversity. We know that exposure at a young age to adversities like trauma, mental health, abuse and loss of a parent can negatively affect the developing brains and bodies of children and youth. Safe and caring relationships are a powerful force in combating these negative effects. This is why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg is working hard to keep our virtual mentoring programs going.  

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg serves between 600-700 young people annually! All Move for Mentoring proceeds will help support mental health for young people in our community.
