PRLog - April 22, 2011 - KINNELON, N.J. -- The Brake the Hunger Cycle Tour is one of the largest charity bike rides in northern New Jersey, with proceeds supporting The Community Food Bank of New Jersey, locally, and internationally, projects providing clean, sanitary water sources.
The girls in Troop 951 will be biking one of the routes as a team, and have designed their own T-shirts for the ride. Each girl in the troop has taken responsibility of one aspect of supporting the event; making school announcements, informing other troop leaders about the event, designing flyers, baking and organizing a bake sale table and recruiting other troops to host one of the four rest stops along the various routes which support the riders with food and fuel for their rides.
Junior Troop Leader Dina Fanelli explained that this is a service project for the girls who are working toward their Bronze award, on their way to earning the Gold Award, the highest in Girl Scouting, equivalent to the Eagle Award in Boy Scouting. To earn the Bronze Award, the girls must complete four preliminary badge projects plus a 15-hour service award project.
