Harry “Quint” Bowers, an Eagle Scout with Troop 119, recently received word that he will represent the Alamo Area Council as the recipient of the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams Award.
Harry, completed his Eagle Scout Project, Might Mitts: Hand warmers for Kids with Cancer in the Spring of 2019. Bowers fundraised and facilitated the creation of over 400 Mighty Mitts to aid pediatric cancer patients, who suffer from neuropathy, a common side effect from chemotherapy. He dedicated his project to a young man from his community that he had befriended named Waylon Malone, who lost his battle with Neuroblastoma on March 29, 2017.
The Mighty Mitts were donated to four local hospitals – University Health Pediatric Blood and Cancer Center (San Antonio), Christus Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, Methodist Children’s Hospital of San Antonio and Dell Children’s Blood and Cancer Center (Austin).
Harry is excited and honored to represent the River District and Alamo Area Council as his project is considered for future advancement.
