Hello, my name is Gavin Kohute. I am 15 years old and I started Scouts in 1st grade when I joined Cub Scout Pack 204 in Jackson, NJ. Now I am in Troop 204 in Jackson and asking for your help to achieve Eagle Scout through my Eagle Scout Project, a 5K race. I enjoy running for cross country and track so I chose to manage a 5K race as my project. I decided to coordinate this race to benefit the Jackson Mills Volunteer Fire Company Station 54 because they have helped the Troop tremendously throughout the years and I would like to give back to them in these troubling times. Any and all support is greatly appreciated in making this event a success.

Thank you,
Gavin Kohute
