Join us on Thursday, September 29 at the Rec Center to kick off a new program with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) – Sports Buddies! Sports Buddies is a BBBS program where adult mentors and BBBS kids can connect through fun activities. Collins is hosting an Open House at the Rec Center for employees to learn more about the program and participate in fun activities with the kids, such as ping pong, bags, and pickleball.

Over the last year, BBBS of Cedar Rapids impacted over 400 children in our community and continues to seek more volunteers. The connections kids make with BBBS mentors through various programs have been shown to help improve educational outcomes, reduce the potential for risky behavior, and help kids see their full potential. Your participation in Sports Buddies could make a huge difference in a child’s life.

For more information on becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister and participating in the Sports Buddies, please visit the BBBS website.
