I just got done writing an article about a Scout in Australia who is going to cycle across Australia to raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia.
Here is a quote about Scouting:
Jack also credits his scouting background, Scouts really has trained me for the ride - training and doing a ride like this is about discipline, self reliance and perseverance. Helping others is also a huge part of Scouts and I hope to do that with the ride.
I think this is amazing that this 15 year old put together this goal, talked his Dad into it, and is now using it to raise awareness and money for a charity group.

Either way you should look into it and see what a great young man Jack is. It would be a great motivational topic for a Scoutmaster Conference or Training event.
Keep it Real,
