Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.

All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.

NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J

Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also

This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…

Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.

Sincerely yours,


Glenn Benton

Troop History & Sponsors

Troop History

Troop 39 has a rich heritage of nearly 100 years of service to Chapel Hill, the University of North Carolina, and our country. Founded in 1912, it is the oldest Boy Scout troop in North Carolina and one of the oldest in the nation. We will celebrate the troop’s centennial in 2011 and 2012 with many different activities. Keep up with the planning of these through our website, http://www.troop39nc.org/a-look-back/

Conservation has been a focus of Troop 39 since its inception. Inspired by SOAR (Save Our American Resources), an environmental program started by the Boy Scouts of America, a glass recycling project was initiated in 1970. Over the subsequent decades, the Troop built and maintained a recycling center and recycled over 20,000 tons of glass, 85,000 tons of paper, 10,000 tons of aluminum, and 33 tons of pallets! Our recycling
efforts continue today with delivery of mulch (recycled yard waste) from the county landfill. Troop 39 is also featured in Boys Life magazine for its contribution to the construction of the Mountain to Sea trail in North Carolina.

Troop 39 has helped mold the character of an estimated 1,500 youth since it was established nearly 100 years ago. In the past 50 years, over 200 members have been awarded the Eagle Scout award. Alumni have become leaders in their professions and in their communities. It’s a heritage of which we are proud, but we are confident that the best is yet to come!
