The second annual BIG Pursuit was a tremendous success once again this year.  Thank you to all the participants, volunteers, business supporters and donors for your support.  39 teams participated in a variety of fun and challenging activities that helped them discover Red Deer in a way they never have before.  From getting out of an escape room, visiting an archery range to finding Francis the Pig there was fun to be had by all who attended.

Thank you to our presenting sponsor from SERVUS Credit Union. This event would simply not happen without the incredible level of support from our friends at SERVUS.  17 SERVUS teams participated raising more than $25,000.  SERVUS also provided tremendous support with volunteers on the day of the event, in addition to leadership on the event planning committee.

Thank you to Media Title sponsor BIG 105.  From support on the planning committee, operating the Safety City Checkpoint and MC’s Alyssa and Jamie for their help in making this event so successful.

Thank you to the Radisson Hotel as host sponsor for this year’s BIG Pursuit. What a great venue to host this kind of event.

Funds raised through the BIG Pursuit support Big Brothers Big Sisters in the areas of volunteer recruitment, screening, orientation, training, child safety, ongoing match support and small group activities.
