Beaverton, April 27th. Fun-loving athletes took to the lanes for “Nike Bowl For Kids’ Sake”. It was a fundraising event to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest. The $158,000 raised is enough to support 132 children matched with a Big Brother or Sister! More than 200 people participated in the bowling event at Sunset Lanes. Chabre Vickers, Big Brothers Big Sisters; and Walter Fuller, Nike, participated in Bowl For Kids’ Sake. Walter, a Big Brother, is also the 2012 National Big Brothers Big Sister champion for the most money raised — hence the “golden pin”. Walter and his team Lanesanity raised over $41,000.

From Big Brothers Big Sisters:
Our  mission is to provide children experiencing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters vision: all children can achieve success in life. Here’s the proof. National research has shown that positive relationships between children and their Big Brothers and Sisters have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. By participating in our programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are:

  • more confident in their schoolwork performance
  • able to get along better with their families
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
  • 52% less likely to skip school.
