Boy Scout Troop 243 is hosting its 3rd annual Scout Strong 5K Fun Run & Walk on Saturday, May 20th, 2017 at North Collier Regional Park. The event will benefit the Boy Scouts of Troop 243 and the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Avid and recreational runners, walkers and furry friends of all ages are welcome! If you would prefer to stay in bed, but contribute to the Scouts' efforts, you can simply register as a "Sleep-In participant".
Did you know that without the support of the community, Harry Chapin Food Bank would not have been able to provide in 2016 over 15 million meals to families in need in Southwest Florida? Help Boy Scout Troop 243 raise 1000 pounds of food by making a donation on the registration page or take much-needed, non-perishable food items the day of the event.
Together we can make a difference in our community!
