On Saturday, October 5, 2013, Adventure Quest was held at Concordia University where Bigs and Littles had to work together to overcome a series of checkpoints consisting of obstacle courses and challenging puzzles. The weather was beautiful and the campus was full of laughter and words of encouragement as teams made their way through the race. 

Thank you Austin Association of Facility & Maintenance Engineers (AAFAME) for supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas in promoting teamwork and building trust. A special thanks to all the sponsors who helped make this event possible.

Ever wonder how it feels to run around in a human hamster ball?

The event coordinators and staff of volunteers were super friendly and kept the event running smoothly like a well-oiled engine. It was also great to see that Bigs and Littles were not the only ones tackling the course; parents were also involved in the action. It was heart-warming to see the interaction between the Bigs and Littles. Even though everyone’s shirts were drenched with sweat, their momentum could not be stopped.

The teams with the best times in their age bracket received awesome trophies. But everyone left a winner as Bigs and Littles made memories that will last a lifetime. Be on the lookout for Adventure Quest 2014, we hope to see everyone there!
