Race Photos Benefit Choctaw Area Council
Last year, we were glad to have Snap It Sports Photography team up with us to provide all runners with the chance to purchase pictures of them running in the Words to Live By 5K. From those sales, 100% of the earnings were given directly to the Choctaw Area Council. We are proud to announce that Snap It Sports will again be contributing 100% of the sales to the council. We hope that you will help support Scouting by purchasing your pictures!
