Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada
March 28, 2011

I was a girl scout for six years growing up in Las Vegas. I left the organization due to my interests at the time, but always had fond memories of my time spent there.

I was so happy to learn about the Thin Mint Sprint several years later - it was a great way to get the community involved with the girl scouts and for a chance for me to once again touch base with this organization. I also appreciate how it involved healthful living through running and walking activities - It's great to enjoy all the girl scout cookies (which I did at the end!), but it's important that the kickoff to the selling season was with activity as the two should go hand in hand.

Kudos to the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada finally bridging the gap of their No. 1 selling/fund-raising initiative with activity to promote healthy living. It's good for the women and girls in Girl Scouts as well as for the community.

The Great!

Throughout my life I have taken with me the lessons I learned in Girl Scouts. From always helping those in need to how to start a fire when going camping. I am now a board member of a children's health organization and think part of that mentality came from my time in Girl Scouts. I also improved my time in running at the Thin Mint Sprint, so that was really nice and encouraging!

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of any at the moment.
