HYANNIS — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod and The Islands announced that their “60 Guys in 30 Days” campaign was successfully completed last week.

The organization set out to recruit 60 male volunteers to serve as Big Brothers for a long waiting list of Cape Town children over a 30-day period in March.

The group shared on its social media last week that the campaign ended early after reaching its goal in 25 days.

“We are absolutely blown away by the number of men who have come forward. The results of this campaign have the potential to change the lives of the over 60 boys on our waiting list, said Regional Manager JR Mell.

Mell credited several community leaders who made call-to-action videos for people to volunteer, including Shawn DeLude of Nauset Disposal, Sgt. Corey Frederickson of the Barnstable Police Department, State Senator Julian Cyr, Scott Kwarta of the Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod, Jackie Barber of Cape & Islands United Way and Joe Beasley of Cape Cod 5.

Leadership Cape Cod, Bad Martha’s Brewery, Cape Cod Beer, The Pelham House and Cape Cod Young Professionals have all partnered with the group for events to support the campaign.
