Join Big Brothers Big Sisters, changing lives in Southwest Virginia

Our Events Make A Difference

We fund about 25% of our mission through special events. Whether you want to rappel off a building, bowl a few games, or find out more about being a Big, we have an event for you.

Over The Edge

Over The Edge is a unique way to support Big Brothers Big Sisters by rappelling 100 feet from the roof of the Roanoke Higher Education Center. The first 85 people to register and raise $1000 will rappel on May 18, 2019!

Big For A Day

A child between the ages of 9-12 will have the privilege of spending two hours in January, National Mentoring Month, with a prominent community leader in Roanoke, New River Valley or Pulaski County. These leaders will have the opportunity to experience mentoring with a Little when they share professional time at work.
