Who wants to organize a 5th year and running, 5K fun run!?

Maria C. is a Girl Scout who has organized and facilitated a 5K fun run for the last four years and is graduating this year. She is not able to facilitate this event anymore, and it has been a benefit to a local elementary school through Community Table in Arvada to provide birthday cake, frosting, and candles for every kid in the school on their birthday. This elementary school is a low-resource school and has backpacks they give away on the weekend with food and the cake is to ensure that every kid gets a cake on his/her birthday! The event was called Run for Cake and ran on Van Bibber Creek sidewalk open space for the last four years. Are there any Girl Scouts or troops out there interested in continuing to organize this fun run, which could help benefit this elementary school, so they can continue to receive cakes from the Arvada Food Bank?

Contact Judy, assistant Girl Scout leader of Troop 3301, at             (303) 524 – 5838.
