In February, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska Council hosts a “Scouting for the Cure” event in Alliance. This event helps educate girls and their family members about healthy lifestyles and breast cancer, and other cancers too. In the past, girls have sewn pillows for breast cancer patients, created chemo care kits, participated in awareness banner decorating contests, took part in event activities, and honored survivors. Event admission is $10 for girls and $8 for adults.
The Scouting for the Cure organizer continues to seek partners from the breast cancer community to help expand and promote this event. They are also looking for guest speakers, survivors and sponsor organizations. Guest speakers and community partners who participate will receive free admission and t-shirt.
The next Scouting for the Cure event is scheduled for February 23, 2019 from 1-4:00 pm. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Krista Blumanthal at 308.760.1362 or [email protected].
