It was a beautiful day for service to the community
this past Saturday as Scouts from Troops 1109 and 254 worked as clean-up crew, at-large helpers, cheerleaders, relayers and Honor Guard for the Forsyth County Relay for Life, hosted by The American Cancer Society. Relay For Life is a fun-filled event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times. Troop 1109 was asked by The American Cancer Society to support our local event in cheerful service, and we gladly accepted and opened up the service project to any area Boy Scouts wanting to help out. Troop 254 heard our call for assistance and came in full force.
An easy YES.
We all know someone who has been affected by cancer. Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. This is a GREAT cause and a GREAT event. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day at the Cumming Fairgrounds. We look forward to working to support this event for years to come. Saying YES to Relay For Life was a no-brainer. We loved every minute of the 9 hours we were there. Thank you American Cancer Society for giving us the opportunity to serve.
