Join us for the 2017 Girls Go the Distance Family FunDay on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at Old Bethpage Village Restoration. This all new event is a fun, interactive day for families where all participants can compete in both old and new physical and mental challenges to earn patches and prizes.
All funds generated from Girls Go the Distance benefit Girl Scouts of Nassau County's (GSNC) Healthy Living Initiative programs to help our Council develop and provide engaging activities that inspire girls to learn how to integrate all aspects of being healthy into their daily lives.

Troop Team Incentives:
If a Girl Scout Troop registers as a Team, the Team will receive special incentives available only to registered Girl Scout Troops in the form of a monetary rebate.
All Troop income, including participation fees, tag-along fees, and all sponsorship raised, will count toward this rebate.
If you raise:
$100 to $500 - Troop receives 10% Give Back
$501 to $1000 - Troop receives 15% Give Back
$1001+ - Troop receives 20% Give Back
The top Troop Team also earns a complimentary program at the Long Island Children's Museum in Garden City.
To start a Troop Team, enter your Troop name in the First Name field, and enter your Troop Number is Last Name field (i.e. Brown Troop 123). Please note: your troop number must be included in your team name to receive any troop incentives. Additional note: only one troop team fundraising link can be created per team, however your respective team page can be customized to include all girl members, or any other relevant information you wish to add.
Once your troop team page has been finalized, work with parents to distribute your respective troop team link, and help them send emails to friends, family members, and co-works asking them to sponsors their daughters in helping the Troop Team reach their goal.
