Bay teen seeking donations for Eagle Scout project

Dillon Forsythe is building a duck race for his Bay Days booth to raise funds for his Eagle Scout project.

Hello, this is part two of my new crusade to remodel the United Methodist Church’s youth group room as my Eagle Scout Project!

The Bay Days carnival is fast approaching. When it does, I will be there with my fundraiser, “Dillon’s Duck Race.” I am currently building the duck race, and it will be ridiculously fun for all kids and adults! Remember, all proceeds from my booth go to Bay United Methodist Church. 

I will also have envelopes that you can enclose a donation to sponsor me for the July 4 Bay Days Run. Please come to my booth, I would love to meet you in person! You may also donate on my secured online fundraising page at www.active.com/donate/DillonsRunForJesus. Please take note, this is a new web address, different from my first article. This is the one that will be valid throughout the summer.

There are a lot of teenagers going through hard times in surrounding cities, including Bay Village. They need our help and support. I want to be a good role model for all the teenagers out there who need encouragement and strengthening. I am going to do my best to send a courageous message to those in need.

I am in training for the five-mile Bay Days Run. I will be running for sponsorships that will go toward the Bay United Methodist Church. So, if you see a tall, slender young man wearing a "Running For Jesus" T-shirt, honk your horn (if you happen to be in the car, otherwise, just give me a friendly “Hello”), and let it remind you to help me raise money for this great cause! 

Checks may also be sent to Bay United Methodist Church, 29931 Lake Road, Bay Village, OH 44140. Please put “Dillon’s Eagle Scout Project” in the memo! Thank you and I am looking forward to truly making a difference in the coming weeks.
