To earn their Silver Award, the second highest award a Girl Scout can obtain, the girls of
Blanchard Girl Scout Troop 496 hosted Blanchard's first official sanctioned 5K in 2013.
This annual fundraising event for Troop 496 supports group (s) or person (s) in need from
the Blanchard area each year as a community service project. Troop 496 is from the
Heartland Service Unit and aims to leave behind their dedication to this project with the
naming of the 5K "Blanchard Heartland 5K".
