Click the link and start getting excited about the Nightmare Challenge! September 6th, just North of Zanesville at the Nightmare in Nashport – Trail of Terror. Proceeds from this giant mud-run will benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Muskingum Valley Council Boy Scouts of America.
Register to run at the link above, or, if your unit would like to help marshal the event, contact the Council Service Center. We’ll need about 50 youth and adults along the trail and at the obstacles. This promises to be a ‘Frightfully Fun’ event - don’t miss it!
These are the patches that were made for Ray Nicholson’s scholarship. $10 each. Ray earned his Eagle Scout right here in the Muskingum Valley Council. The Scholarship is a great way to honor Ray’s life and accomplishments while supporting current and future Scouts. All proceeds go directly to the scholarship account. They are available at the Council office and at Fink’s where Ray worked.
