Scouting for the Cure is a program created through a partnership with the Charlotte, NC affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to create breast health awareness among girls and their families. SFTC is the first program of its kind in the country and was one of the original Model Programs with national Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Created 11 years ago by a GSHNC troop leader and her sister, both breast cancer survivors, this program educates Girl Scouts and their families about breast health and breast cancer through a variety of fun, creative activities in a safe and nurturing environment. SFTC has been implemented by other Komen affiliates across the country, and there is now international interest in the program. Four events will run concurrently in Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Stanley and Union counties this year, serving more than 2,000 participants.
