PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN

                        About Us

Cracker Trail is one of the events that is supported by over 8,000 American Legion members in the 11th District and the 123,000 Members of the Legion in the State of Florida.  Since its Congressional Charter in 1919 the American Legion has been supporting the Boy Scouts of America and proudly support the continued growth of the "Cracker Trail Competition"  event.


The event supports the many Legion Veteran’s Programs and the fees to the Scouts and their families are kept to a minimum to ensure participation of as many Scouts as possible and no Scout is every turned away for financial reasons. This is why your support is essential to our mission, for without your kind sponsorship, our important work is difficult to accomplish.   Become part of our patriotic movement, Veterans teaching our Scouts to be strong future leaders of America.
