Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

If you have questions about our calendar, or would like to add a listing, please contact calendar@bigsunday.org or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt @ Exposition Park
Oct 26 @ 7:30 am – 11:30 am

Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt is a series of charity dog walks that bring entire communities together to raise money to help save the lives of homeless pets.

This is much more then a fundraising walk. Strut Your Mutt is a fun-filled festival where four-, three- and two-legged participants of all ages can take part in activities like doggie yoga, pet portraits, music, contests and more.

In 2018, at the many events across the country, as well as online, participants came together to show their support for the animals. Together, more than $2.3 million was raised.
