Event Information
Dear Valued Friends and Supporters,

In 2020, this will be our 10th annual Daffodil Run/Walk for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Each spring, we gather on the last Sunday in April in downtown Amherst for this 5K/10K event to celebrate the strength of young people and our community. Due to COVID-19, we will not hold the Daffodil Run in person as planned on April 26, 2020.

INSTEAD we have decided to take the Daffodil Run to the internet on the same day! Here’s how it works—you register to run or walk virtually, you plan your course (we’ll help you!), and you run or walk your 5K/10K wherever you are. Document your participation by sending us a photo or video of your run or walk by noon on Sunday, April 26th. From 11am-1pm that day, we will connect with a celebratory live stream, when we’ll cheer you on for finishing your race! Registrants will be eligible to win amazing giveaway prizes that include:

10 Class Card to 50/50 Fitness/Nutrition
60 Minute Session with Sarah Kay Photography
Race Passes to Pioneer Valley Indoor Karting
At-Home Bike Tune-Up from Speed & Sprocket
and a brand new iPad and AirPods!!!

Whole Foods
Trader Joe’s
L.L. Bean
Bueno Y Sano
El Comalito
Elements Hot Tub Spa
Rachel Hannah Massage
and MORE!

Kids 12 and under will each receive a coupon for a free Insomnia Cookie, and be entered into a drawing for $50 gift cards to The Toy Box, A2Z Science & Learning Store, and Amherst Books!

Our mission of creating and supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships to ignite the power and promise of youth does not decrease because of a pandemic. In fact, the stresses that our children are facing in the midst of this national emergency only increase the need for connection with a mentor. The Daffodil Run for Big Brothers Big Sisters is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we count on the revenue from this event to continue our service to our kids, their families, and their mentors. We are asking for your help in making this event as successful as ever!

Please reach out directly to race director Katie Lipsmeyer at klipsmeyer@chd.org if you have any questions. Take good care of yourselves and others, and take comfort in knowing that we are all in this together!

All our best,
The Team at Big Brothers Big Sisters
