Get fit and help raise money for our District!
We challenge our Packs, Troops, Crews, Posts and individuals to get their “Fitness On” in 2015 by participating in a sports and/or fitness related activity that can help you get fit and keep Scouting strong in the Twin Lights District.
What are the benefits for Scouts? Scouts can use this challenge to help meet requirements for the Personal Fitness Merit Badge, Venturing Awards, Sportsman Webelos Pin, Cub Scout Sports Belt Loops & Pins, and fulfill various requirements for Cub Scout Fitness Achievements. Scouts can also gain leadership experience by serving as the coordinator for their “team” or “unit.”
How does it work? This challenge asks Scouts, parents and leaders to “get fit” and help raise money for Scouting by getting sponsors for their fitness activities. You can participate as a team (group of Scouts/friends), a unit, a parent/youth team, or as an individual.
What kinds of Fitness activities can you participate in for the challenge? Examples include: a 5K Walk/Run, a Tri-Athalon, a swimming lap challenge, a basketball free throw contest, a hike-a-thon, a sit-up challenge, the possibilities are endless.
How do you take pledges?

Are there prizes? Yes, there will be prizes for the most donations collected and participants will receive different incentives depending on the donation level they achieve. Details to be announced soon.
How do we find local events to participate in or resources to start our program? A series of resource documents and links will soon be available on this website to help you plan and carry out a successful fitness and fundraising program.
What if I we want to support the program but don’t want to “get fit” ourselves? You are free to support any of the teams that will be participating and you can also support John Kilduff who has made his challenge the Boston Marathon this spring.
