2014 Girls Go The Distance Walkathon and Activity Fair Patch Contest

Girl Scouts of Nassau County is proud to present the 2014 Girls Go the Distance Walkathon and Activity Fair Patch!

This year’s patch, designed with exercise and healthy choices in mind, was a combination of two different patch designs, refined into one patch. The patch features a Girl Scout outside on a sunny day drinking water and being active.  The patch also features this year’s name of the event, date and location.  Doesn’t it look great?

Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Girls Go the Distance Patch Contest! The winning designers are: Alexa and Mia from Junior Troop 3364 and Samantha from Cadette Troop 3289

Girls Go The Distance Walkathon and Activity Fair is a fun and interactive two mile walk and activity fair centered on the theme of Healthy Living. Registered Girl Scout Troops will have the opportunity to earn a “give back” for their own Healthy Living projects.

All funds generated from the Walkathon and Activity Fair will benefit Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s Healthy Living Initiatives program. Healthy Living Initiatives brings a unique perspective to keeping girls healthy. In order for girls to live healthy, they first have to learn how, and have fun doing it. Funding is needed to help GSNC develop and provide engaging activities that inspire girls to learn how to integrate all aspects of healthy living into their daily lives.

This year’s Walkathon will be held on Sunday, April 27 from 9:30am to 1:00pm at Old Bethpage Village Restoration. For more information, please visit the GSNC Walkathon Webpage at
