Our latest BCM Challenge campaign is a whole team of Boy Scouts from San Marcos, Texas, led by Clay Green, Professor of Biology at Texas State University. Here’s their plan to help BCM this summer:
In 2010, the Boy Scouts of America will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Scouting in America. Troop 112 will be backpacking 112 miles through the Wind River Range of Wyoming to commemorate the BSA Centennial. Troop 112 also wants to commemorate the BSA Centennial through our dedication to “helping other people at all times.” We want other youth in America to get to experience the same joys and excitement of the outdoors that we as Scouts do. Therefore, Troop 112 of San Marcos Texas is raising funds to send a group of under-resourced youth backpacking through the non-profit organization Big City Mountaineers. Please consider making a donation today to support our goal of $2000 to fully fund a BCM trek. You can pledge a one time amount or pledge per mile for a scout. Our goal is to backpack 112 miles in July 2010.
Clay and Troop 112 will be stopping by the BCM office in Denver at the end of July, after their backpacking trip in the Winds. We’re looking forward to meeting the guys and thanking them for their help!
