7 Mile Earth Day Challenge
Boys and Girls from both Scappoose and St Helens High School & Youth Soccer teams will participate in
the” 7 Mile Earth Day Challenge” selling “Trees” for $5.00 to raise funds. Many of the trees were
donated from Scappoose Bay Watershed Council which helps increase profits. This fundraiser is designed
for 100 % of the proceeds from sale of “Trees” (*disclaimer or native plants) dedicated to the programs.
This fundraiser launched on Earth Day and will run up to October 22nd, with the winners being announced at halftime of the Scappoose vs St. Helens boys and girls soccer games on October 23rd.
In the Fall 2018, the students that sold the “Trees” will volunteer to help the Scappoose Bay Watershed
Council plant in a designated area along Crown Zellerbach Trail. This is a win/win for the watershed as they need volunteers to help
plant native plants & trees and it brings two local schools together on a project to promote their community.
Scappoose & St Helens High School hasn’t played a league soccer game in a decade. This October the
High School Boys & Girls teams will compete against one another on the same day. During half time,
one boy and one girl will be chosen by their coaches as the recipients of the “7 Mile Earth Day
Challenge” each awarded $1,000 scholarship to their respective soccer programs by sponsors Theresa
Muth, John L. Scott & Matt McHugh, Cascadia Home Loans.
