UPDATE (May 1, 2020): We will be proceeding with The Big Pursuit in a new way. The VIRTUAL Big Pursuit will occur on Sunday, May 24. Visit The Big Pursuit event page for more information on this exciting twist to our annual fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer and District.
As we all continue to be impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 health crisis, we have decided to postpone The BIG Pursuit event scheduled for April 26, 2020. Please note we are postponing the fundraiser, not cancelling.
With a date to come in the fall, our pledging campaign to raise funds is not being suspended, and we encourage all of our participants and teams to continue their fundraising efforts. We understand that trying to raise funds at this time can also be very challenging, but we express our heart-felt appreciation for those efforts. Once our new date has been determined we will let everyone know promptly.
The funds being raised have never been more critical than they are at this challenging time. Despite our office being closed, we continue to engage the children and families by supporting and encouraging mentoring connections through a variety of other means. Thank you for your support!
May everyone stay safe and healthy and support each other during this difficult time.
Event Manager, The BIG Pursuit 2020
