Community Service – Running for a Good Cause 

32nd Annual Tuckahoe Road Race - ECAP

Scouts of Troop 353 were given a unique opportunity to earn community service hours – running in the 32nd Annual Tuckahoe Challenge Road Race! How do scouts earn community service hours for jogging? As you may imagine, this is a significant local event. And this year, the Eastchester Community Action Program (ECAP) was allowed to have sponsors run in the race. Qualified runners were asked to secure sponsorships to fund partially ECAP’s Project Restoration — monies needed for physical restoration of the ECAP’s local office building. The Road Race consisted of both a one-mile and a five-mile segment and the turnout included at least two hundred runners, including several family members of Troop 353.  As a result, our scouts were successful at raising meaningful sums of money for ECAP.
