Cleveland Cavalier Darnell Jackson teams with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland to Issue “Mentoring Challenge”
Date:3/25/2010

Over 300 young men have applied to receive mentors from the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland. With no mentors to serve them, Cleveland Cavalier and former Big Brother Big Sister program participant Darnell Jackson is teaming up with BBBS and local Cleveland sponsors to issue a 100-day "Mentoring Challenge" to get 100 mentors and raise $100,000 to support and grow the 100 mentor/child matches.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 17, 2010 -- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland has partnered with Cleveland Cavaliers’ Forward Darnell Jackson to issue the Darnell Jackson Mentoring Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to recruit at least 100 mentors in 100 days.    

The Darnell Jackson Mentoring Challenge stems from Darnell’s passion and commitment to developing at-risk youth in our community.

Darnell suffered the tragedy of losing his father at a very young age. He credits mentors in his life who aided him on his path to success. Their positive message and encouragement helped direct Darnell to a positive place, make good decisions and ultimately supported him in his dream of becoming an NBA player. “I would never have made it to the NBA without my mentor” said Darnell. “Now, it’s time for me to give back”

“This is personal for Darnell. He understands the need first hand. We have more than 300 boys on our waiting list and it’s critical to us to serve them,” said Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland President & CEO Margaret Mitchell. &ld
