AVON — In an effort to prevent the Avon food pantry from running out of food for the holiday season, Avon Girl Scout Cadette Troop 1084 is excited to present the 1st Annual Dash Through the Snow 5K Race to take place in December.
Avon board officials were delighted to see twelve eager girl scouts enter the Village Hall to request approval for the 5K Race set for December 14, Monday night.
The Girl Scout troop took turns explaining the details for the planned 5K to the Village board.
“This is the best presentation I think we have ever seen,” said Tom Freeman, Mayor for the Village of Avon. “They have really done their homework.”
Dash Through the Snow is set to at 9 a.m. with registration beginning at 8 a.m. No fee is required to participate in the race, all that is asked for is the donation of either five cans of nonperishable food or five gently used books.
After the completion of the race, the Avon Girl Scout Cadette Troop will be selling t-shirts for approximately $5.00. All proceeds will go directly towards the Avon food pantry.
Dash Through the Snow will also help the Avon Girl Scout Troop receive a very much desired silver award, which is a huge achievement for the Girl Scouts.
After a resounding approval from the village board, Dash Through the Snow is officially set to take place on December 14 and will begin and end at the Avon Middle School bus loop.
