Knit-A-Thon for Hats 4 Happiness

 

Girl Scouts Plan Knit-A-Thon to aid children with cancer

Hats 4 HappinessClarksville, TN – Ryleigh, a member of Girl Scouts Troop 779, had a class mate that passed away last year from cancer. It was hard for her to watch a classmate grow sick, lose her hair, then finally her battle with cancer.  While they weren’t close, getting the updates of her classmate was confusing, painful and frustrating – being only 13 years old, and not knowing what to do to help.

So when her she sat down with her fellow troop members to brainstorm about what to do for a Silver Award project (the second highest award that a Girl Scout can earn), she thought of her classmate and mentioned it to them – and the rush of ideas began to take form.

Knit-A-Thon for Hats 4 Happiness set for Sunday, May 8th.
