The University of New Mexico is teaming up to have fun and positively impact the lives of children across New Mexico through Big Brothers Big Sisters’ (BBBS) Bowl for Kids’ Sake, on April 28.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is BBBS largest annual fundraising campaign. Proceeds raised leading up to the event will directly support BBBS mentoring programs in the community. Hundreds of UNM staff serve BBBS as volunteers to help make a difference in children's lives.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a fun and easy way to directly impact children’s lives by helping BBBS continue to match at-risk children with one-on-one mentoring relationships. BBBS has been changing the lives of children by matching them with caring adults since 1904. This year, BBBS has a goal of serving 1,600 youths.
