Look what you’ve started
We would like to extend a BIG thank you to the Mountaineers Foundation for their generous support of the HARK (Healthy and Resilient Kids) outdoor program. Their financial support allows us to do a monthly outdoor outing to encourage confidence and an interest in healthy activities. We partner with the Olympia Mountaineers to do activities as varied as rock climbing, hiking, snow shoeing and kayaking. We could not provide these enhancements for the Littles in our program without the support of the Mountaineers Foundation.
A BIG thanks to everyone who attended our BIG Auction 007 at Great Wolf Lodge! We are excited and energized about the possibilities created by so many generous guests!

We had a great time on Friday at our 23rd BIG Golf tournament! We had sunshine (in the afternoon), fun, prizes, smiles, and generous support from our community so that we can continue to match kids with mentors who will help them do well in school and make safe and healthy choices. You can see more great photos on our Facebook page.
We had a great time last night with our friends at Great Wolf Lodge for our second annual Kinect Bowl! 25 kids waiting for a Big joined Pack Members for Kinect Bowling, a Wii Dance competition, and dinner. A few Pack Members even decided to become a Big! Thank you Great Wolf Lodge for being fabulous hosts and for helping us kick off Bowl for Kids’ Sake!
Thanks to our friends at REI this will be a great year for our Littles. Through their Round-Up, REI raised enough to fund 6 HARK outings! HARK is a partnership between Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Washington and the Olympia Mountaineers that allows our Littles to do outdoor activities with their Bigs such as rock climbing, hikes, and snowshoeing. Thank you REI and all of our friends who rounded-up on their purchases!
