Welcome to my Bank of America Chicago Marathon - Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana fundraising page!
Girl Scouts has been a part of my life since my childhood; I have no bad memories from Scouting!
6 years ago I started looking for a Girl Scout troop for my granddaughter. There were none available initially. I was about to request to start a troop when one opened up. It was began by a Mom (Jen) who had been looking for a troop for her daughter. I signed on as a co-leader and my new venture into Scouting began. As an adult member I learned what it takes to provide a Girl Scout experience and that not every girl has easy access to this wonderful program.
Fundraising efforts, like this one, help bring this opportunity to more girls!
I am still with the Troop that was started when my granddaughter was in Kindergarten! I am one of several leaders and co-leaders (Delilah, Theresa, Claudia, Peggy) and volunteers for this Troop.
"It takes a village."
I am inviting you to join us!
Your support will help provide the positive experience of scouting to girls you may never meet!
Thank you in advance!!
Our troops Junior scouts just experimented with the ripple effect at our last meeting. They would be able to tell you - that though their circle may start out small, when they IMPACT their world for good, the waves will grow and spread!
