“We are super excited about our new BIG Splash & Dash 5K!” said Andrea Kindschuh enrollment specialist for BBBS and committee chair for this event.  “We’ve done a 5K in the past, but this one promises a lot more fun with a new theme, new logo and new course.  Whether you are a runner or just enjoy a nice walk, this is a great event!”  

 “All funds raised during this event goes right back into our program,” said Tammy Young, Executive Director for BBBS.  “BBBS is the only one-to-one mentoring program of its kind serving all of Fond du Lac County and the northern portion of Dodge County.  Every walker, runner and sponsor helps make a BIG difference to both the children in our program and the 52 kids on the waiting list” (down from 72 last October), said Young.
