The Big Pursuit fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Red Deer this weekend

The Amazing Race-style event begins Sunday at the Radisson

Dozens will experience an The Amazing Race-style event in Red Deer this weekend.

Several central Alberta teams will participate in Youth HQ’s The Big Pursuit, an annual fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer and District, on Sunday.

The Big Pursuit takes teams of four across Red Deer, solving clues and completing challenges at different checkpoints throughout the city. Teams will require a designated driver and navigator.

Anyone can participate in the event, regardless of physical ability, age or limitations.

This is the primary annual fundraising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters, which pairs children and youths from single-parent families with adults through a mentorship program. In-school mentoring and other programs also bring adults into children’s lives.

Money raised at the event will go towards providing activities for youths on waitlists and in matched pairs. There is a $60,000 goal for the event.

To register for the event, visit www.youthhq.ca/events and click on “The Big Pursuit.”
