There are so many ways to earn a patch for the Thin Mint Sprint!
You can engage as a participant or volunteer, or accumulate walk/run mileage before the race to earn the 5K or the Marathon patch.
Read all about it and turn in your registration form by March 31.
We have lots of great events listed on our Events & Programs calendar. On this page, we provide more in-depth information about upcoming special events.
What makes an event special? These are events which honor the spirit of the Girl Scout Movement or which have a major impact on our Council.
We hope that you will be able to participate! Supporting special events as an attendee, volunteer or sponsor helps us grow Girl Scouting in our community.
It's the best way to stay up on news, events, and opportunities. Back issues can be found in the Archives

Upcoming events for you and your Girl Scouts
Donations: Invest in girls! Click here to read more.
Gifts in Kind: Do you or your business have supplies that could be donated, or a facility that we could use to hold an event? Your donation of an in-kind gift could mean a tax donation for you and a very real benefit to local Girl Scouts.
Honor/Memorial Gifts: This is a very special way to pay tribute to someone. We will send a card to the honoree (or their family) informing them of your tribute.
Planned Giving: Leave a lasting legacy by including Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama in your estate planning.
