I'm participating in "Big Tackles with Harrison Smith" benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities. Please support me by pledging per tackle during my fundraising campaign. I believe in Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities's mission and I'm excited to earn your support with every tackle. Please help me reach the campaign goal of $56,000 by pledging now. I really appreciate your support. Thank you!

BIG Tackles is Back Again!

I’m thrilled to announce the return of my BIG TACKLES campaign, which supports area youth and Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities.

Together with your pledge, every tackle I make during the 2020 season provides financial support to help kids facing adversity reach their potential. Last year, we raised over $72,000 – and I’m expecting 2020 to be an even BIGGER year on and off the field!

Our mission is urgent. In 2019, Big Brothers Big Sisters sharpened our focus to better meet the needs of our community. Nearly 90% of the kids we serve come from low income households, and three-quarters are from non-two-parent households. Minnesota has one of the largest equity and opportunity gaps in the United States for youth of color.

Through mentoring and other youth programs, we continue to tackle the societal issues that limit the potential in tens of thousands of youth in our five-county area. Nearly all of the youth enrolled in BBBS in 2019 improved or maintained their grades and 89% of the high school seniors graduated on time.

But the waiting list for a mentor is long, especially for Little Brothers. Your support of Big Tackles will help Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities match more youth and help them on the path to a life-changing friendship.


This campaign goes beyond football, it’s about giving to those who truly need and deserve our support. Please join me by making a pledge; you can also invest your time by becoming a Big— please click here to sign up.

If you can’t make a pledge, please show your support by sharing the campaign on social media.

Thanks for your support of Big Tackles, and of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
