Scouts Canada-Catch the Wave: National Good Turn Week

National Good Turn Week 2010, March 7 - 13

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) - It's an event never before seen in Canadian history. From March 7 – 13, 2010, Scouts Canada is celebrating the first ever National Good Turn Week, and we are totally pumped.

We promote healthy, active living, leadership skills, and caring for the environment. It's our goal to help create a better world for our young people as future leaders. With this national Good Turn project, we hope to create a better and kinder Canada. With your help, we'll succeed!

Each of our youth will be wearing a bright orange "Good Turn" wristband, but they won't stay on for long. They'll do a good turn, pass on the wristband, then that person will do a good turn and pass on the wristband, and pretty soon, everybody will be catching the wave. Remember, it all starts with just one good turn to show everybody the goodness that makes us all great! For healthy, active living, for leadership, for a cleaner world… for good: that's Scouting!
