Twin Lights Fitness Challenge

What could be better than getting in shape and helping Scouting at the same time? If this sounds like something that you would like, please participate in the Twin Lights Fitness Challenge.

The Fitness Challenge is a program created by the Twin Lights District to encourage our Scouts, Scouters, other volunteers and their families to fulfill the Scout Laws promise to “keep myself physically fit” and at the same time help raise the funds needed to keep Scouting strong in our district. This program is starting at the beginning of the year so that we can take advantage of New Year’s resolutions as well.  So take the challenge and get out there.

For more information please see this guide: Twin Lights Fitness Challenge Participant Guide
