An important element of the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally over the years has been the fundraising aspect. It was in 2015 that we decided to focus our efforts on raising funds for a local charity - if we were swarming a city/town, we want to raise funds for that specific population.... and that's when Big Brothers Big Sisters entered into the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally world!
Keeping it local - big brothers big sisters of peterborough
The last two rallies saw us fundraising for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Guelph and London chapters. This year we reached out to the Peterborough chapter and we are so excited to work with them to bring awareness to their fabulous efforts.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peterborough promotes the growth and development of at-risk children and youth in our community through the provision of mentoring programs with positive adult role models.
Big Brothers was established in Peterborough in 1964 to provide a mentoring program for boys of single parent led families. In the first year of operation the agency supported 9 young boys. The agency has grown exponentially over the years and in 1972 introduced the Big Sister program as well. 54 years later we are still delivering top quality mentoring programs to children in the City and County of Peterborough. We continue to provide our community based Big Brother and Big Sister programs as well as the In-School Mentoring, Go Girls and Game On programs. We also offer a variety of activities and programs for the children on our waiting list. Last year we served over 350 children and we are on track to serve even more this year.
