Madison Scouts Alumni Rockin’ For A Cure
One of the most inspired corps alumni events anywhere is the annual Madison Scouts “Rockin’ for a Cure,” now in its sixth year. This gathering not only brings together Madison Scouts alumni and corps fans and other supporters for a great time of music and camaraderie, the event is a benefit for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease).
In 1999, former corps member and Scouts’ instructor Steve Weekes was stricken with ALS. He founded the first of the alumni benefits on behalf of ALS research.
