Hopkinton Girl Scouts hosted a Boston Marathon tea to educate other Girl Scouts on the 'Go the Distance' patch program created in Hopkinton. This year's tea will allow those who have already received the patch to mentor and encourage other Girl Scouts to earn the patch as well. By sharing their discoveries, connections and actions they will educate and hopefully inspire other scouts to pursue this patch or to develop a new project of their own.
