Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts 5K 2023

Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts from AAMES (Association of African Methodist Episcopal Scouts) in troops and units across African Methodist Episcopal Church charter organizations in Maryland, DC and Virginia have embarked upon their first campaign to generate $20,000 to fight against Breast Cancer! They have planned a 5K In-Person/Virtual Run-Walk Race on October 7 – 9, 2023. Scouts have chosen “Indigenous Peoples Weekend” to focus attention on the fight against Breast Cancer as their charitable cause, impacting female and male scouting parents and scout leaders. Run or walk with us on Saturday, October 7, 2023 or choose a Virtual Race, October 7 – 9, 2023 and you name the time, place and method and support our fight against Breast Cancer.
