Girl Scout Troop 33074, located in Bethesda, Maryland, has created a special patch that will be given to all Girl Scouts who participate in person or as a virtual runner in the 5th Defeat DIPG Superhero Sprint & 6K!
At the end of the 2018-19 school year, the troop voted to use the fund they had collected through cookie sales to produce these special patches that raise awareness of the deadliest form of childhood brain cancer: DIPG. This is a cause that is special to the troop, as one of their members, Lila Mosier, lost her big brother Michael to DIPG when he was 6 years old and in kindergarten at Seven Locks Elementary School.
The Superhero 6K event is hosted by Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation, and proceeds from the race event are used to support research to find a cure for this devastating disease.
We are so appreciative for this incredible initiative by these girls! By participating, you will help raise awareness of DIPG, fund research for a cure, and also support this project they created to give back to the community.
For in-person participants, patches will be handed out at the race event. A parent must accompany your Girl Scout to the Troop 33074 table and (1) add her name to the sign in list (with troop number) and (2) show the Girl Scout’s race bib.
For virtual runners, we will send out the patches by mail (U.S. only, first class mail).
