Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to offer a hearty thank you to Valero for their sponsorship of the first ever Big Brothers Big Sisters float in the Fiesta River Parade as well as the first ever Big Brothers Big Sisters Fiesta Medal!
Most people agree it's important to lend a helping hand - but did you know there are ways to have great fun while doing it, too?
Big Brothers Big Sisters has teamed up with the 5k Foam Fest to bring their cause along with fun, foam, and muddy running to San Antonio! Ever run a 5k through a carwash? That's basically this race in a nutshell!
Built for beginners and experts alike, the 5k Foam Fest cleans you up after getting you down and dirty! Picture colossal mud pits, cargo net climbs, and army crawls - then picture giant inflatable obstacles full of fluffy, white foam!
You'll feel like a kid again as you run through the mud and bounce your way through giant inflatable obstacles. Then you'll have to prove you're a grown up as you tackle the Death Drop - the WORLD'S LARGEST inflatable slide!
And aside from having fun, you'll benefit a great cause. A portion of all the proceeds from the event will go to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and kids all around Texas.

Lucky Bigs meet American Idol Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips.
The winners of our Facebook contest had the opportunity to meet American Idol Season 11 winner, Phillip Phillips at the Bjorn’s Studio at Clear Channel on Wednesday, January 30th. Bjorn Dybdahl, owner of Bjorn’s Audio-Video along with Clear Channel Radio, is giving back to the San Antonio community with tickets to select performances at the Bjorn’s Music Series Live Music Lounge. As a family-oriented business, Bjorn’s had no problem picking Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas, “They were an obvious choice considering their impressive track record as a benevolent force for change in the lives of youth in San Antonio.” Congratulations to our volunteer winners: Erica Molina, Darci Wolfgang, Josh Hight and Patricia Haning!
