The Little BIG Run on Saturday, May 5, 2018 is a little run for a BIG cause and will mark the inaugural 5K race benefiting the one-to-one mentoring programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida (BBBSNEFL). In addition to members of the running community and general community at large, volunteer mentors (Bigs) and their littles, who directly benefit from the agency's mentoring programs, will be participating and volunteering at the event, as will BBBSNEFL agency staff and Board Members.
The Little BIG Run is a family friendly event offering both 5K and 1 mile timed races on the scenic Jacksonville Riverwalk. Both courses start and finish at the Winston YMCA. Whether you are a runner, walker, or stroller rider, this is the perfect event for everyone! Individuals and groups are welcome!
Participants will receive unique race t-shirts and custom finisher medals celebrating race completion.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida (BBBSNEFL) is a mentoring organization that seeks to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Working within the communities of Northeast Florida for over a century, BBBSNEFL has effectively changed the lives of thousands through impactful mentoring programs and meaningful relationships.
BBBSNEFL operates under the belief inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Through collaboration with schools and community organizations, we identify at-risk youth who need or want a mentor. By placing a caring adult in the life of a child, BBBSNEFL creates safe, high-quality, long-lasting mentoring relationships that help vulnerable youth beat the odds and reach their full potential through personal and academic achievement.
Proceeds from The Little BIG Run 5K will benefit BBBSNEFL by contributing to the financial strength and stability of the agency. To learn more about BBBSNEFL and our programs, visit www.bbbsnefl.org.
