Match Celebrates Six Memorable Years of Friendship



Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2014

This month, Cheryl and Jashari celebrated six years of friendship together!

Starting the day they were matched, the two have had nothing but smiles on their faces in the many pictures of outings we have been sent over the years.

Beginning in 2011, they built a strong relationship while constantly exploring new adventures and activities. They have been horseback riding, done yoga together, toured a radio station, attended a Publix Cooking Class, visited a 911 call center, been to Funstation, seen plays, watched the Harlem Globetrotters, visited the Governor’s Mansion, attended numerous Big Brothers Big Sisters events, went to the Natural Bridge Civil War battle re-enactment and have made countless memories.

Cheryl has also opened Jashari’s eyes to the wonderful world of reading, and according to her teachers, Jashari’s reading has dramatically improved!

In Jashari’s own words, “Cheryl is a very caring, loving, talented and honest person that I can always depend on. I would trade the world for my Big Sister.”

In 2016, Cheryl was awarded Big Sister of the Year and has only continued to be the best Big Sister her Little could ask for!
