Past Events

One-day Match

On Sunday, July 15, an important sporting event was held: The One-day Match soccer game! Big Sisters on the waiting list and RBC volunteers were paired up with children waiting to be matched with a mentor. They formed two teams, and showed athleticism and great sportsmanship in a friendly soccer game.

After a well-deserved lunch break, the fun day ended with a life-size foosball game.

Basketball Workshop

On August 11, the very talented basketball coach, Mark Lachapelle (ADED Basketball), organized a training session for the matches of our traditional mentoring program.

Thanks to this training session that was followed by a friendly game, Coach Lachapelle definitely made the group worthy of the NBA!

Big Brothers Big Sisters Month

September was Big Brothers Big Sisters Month. As this special month was celebrated across Canada, the festivities led us to Big Brothers Big Sisters Day: On September 18, our BBBS community gathered to celebrate mentoring under the purple light of the Olympic Stadium tower.

The evening was a huge success! A lot of time was spent talking and sharing laughs over delicious sandwiches and games.

Thank you to all those who participated.
