Looking for a good adventure that gives back? Join us for a Virtual Hike benefitting the Boy Scouts of America, Laurel Highlands Council.
With the school closures, job disruptions, and many staying at home, millions of Americans are turning to outdoor adventure to keep themselves busy while staying active!
Starting today, families and friends can unite from near and afar to help support local Scouting.
Join us for a Virtual Hike and participate anywhere and at any time! The location and duration of your hike are entirely up to you, just make sure to complete your hike by September 26, 2020.
Scouting families and the general public are welcome to go on a Virtual Hike!
How to participate
We ask that all hikers select the entry-level of a $20 contribution. Then you can create your own team or join a team. If you're not into hiking, and would just rather donate directly to the cause, that is an option too.
NOTE** Please be sure to "Register" first before creating your team.
- Create a new team. Fill out your contact information, then create your team name.
- Join a team. Fill out your contact information, and you can search for a team to join.
- Donate directly to the cause without participating as a hiker, click Direct Donation.
Any hikers that are interested in the Virtual Hike Gear can add-on to their registration for $15 and receive a LHC Virtual Hike T-Shirt and LHC Neck Gaiter.
