A parent from another Cub Scout Pack, Tina Ober of Pack 828, was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The Webelos of Pack 828 wanted to honor Mrs. Ober, and started a very special service project in her name. They will be hosting a local 5K Run/Walk and 1-mile Family Walk with the proceeds benefiting the Pancreatic Cancer Patients Alliance. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness, increasing education and furthering pancreatic cancer research.
When Christina Sanchez, our new Pack Committee Chair, heard about this event and how the Scouting community is banning together to show support, she felt that we should use this as a learning opportunity for our boys. I completely agree! So we will be coordinating with Cub Scouts and family members of Pack 1800 that would like to attend the event to show community support.
The 1-mile Family/Youth Walk will be on a one mile trail inside Sugar Land Memorial Park, so it is off the road. The 5K Run/Walk will be on University Boulevard. All Scouts that participate are asked to wear their Scout uniforms (not tee-shirts). The cost for the 1-mile Family/Youth Walk is $15.00 per person. You can register online at www.eztoregister.com, click on events and then select Tina Tramples Cancer 5K.
Please note that all children under 12 years will need a parent with them at all times.
