One Giant Leap: October 10, 2015

“One Giant Leap” Leap Frog Tournament set to Hop Off on October 10th!


Event Overview:

Leapfrog to win! Prairielands Council of Boy Scouts is hosting its inaugural One Giant Leap competition on Saturday, October 10th at West Side Park in Champaign during Cub Scout Family Day. Enlist a team of five and help each other leap toward the finish line. Then join us for refreshments, games, and other fun activities for the whole family.

And above all – lifting others to succeed and getting a leap ahead in life! Proceeds benefit the Prairielands Council of Boy Scouts of America. Prairielands Council provides programs and activities that build character, confidence, and camaraderie for all boys, regardless of income.
