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 132 feet from the roof of the Patrick Henry in Downtown Roanoke. The first 85 people to register and raise $1000 will rappel on May 19, 2018!

The Big Summit

The Big Summit is a high-end training event designed specifically for mentors in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Come to the Big Summit and learn to be the best Big you can be! 

Join us in January 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.
