Across the Moon Challenge: October 26th

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wichita County is excited to announce the “Moon Shot: Across the Moon Challenge.”  This unique event is a city-wide challenge for the community, as a whole, to walk the equivalent of the moon’s diameter: 2,159.2 miles.  Funds will be raised for Big Brothers Big Sisters Wichita County through participation at $10 per mile and through sponsorship of the event.  Prizes will be awarded to participants according to miles covered.

The Across the Moon Challenge, to be held October 26th, will provide an evening of music, food trucks, kid’s entertainment and the walk/run along Sikes Lake Trail from 5:00 PM-10:00 PM.  All activities will take place at Sikes Lake and on the grounds of the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU.  Participants may register online and reserve their miles at or by calling the local office at (940) 767-2447.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The local board and staff of BBBS were inspired by that collaborative achievement.  For that reason, they are asking the community to answer the call and support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wichita County.  With backing from area businesses, this is sure to be a well-attended and much talked about event.
