It saddens me very much to announce that we are canceling The Big Event 2019 on Saturday, April 13, 2019. While the support and enthusiasm we have received from our campus community has been overwhelming, the risk posed to our participants by the threat of inclement weather has led us to this very tough decision. The safety of our Eagles must always come first.
I personally want to thank you all for signing up to volunteer your time during The Big Event. The event is a very special campus tradition that everyone looks forward to attending. This year, we were positioned to have the largest volunteer turnout in the history of our program—over 330 volunteers! This is a perfect example of the dedication of our Eagle Family to giving back to the community that supports our University.
Moving forward, we hope you will continue to find ways to support our local community and get involved on campus. The Big Event will continue to host “Little Events” to help the organizations we were unable to help this year. I encourage you to participate in these wonderful community service opportunities. In addition, please mark your calendar for The Big Event 2020 which will be held on April 11, 2020.
Once again, thank you for offering to spread your Eagle Pride City Wide.
Thank you to our sponsors:
We hope you will consider joining us on our one big day of saying thank you to Texarkana, USA!
