Marana Eagle Scout organizes 5K diaper drive

MARANA - Local Eagle Scout Devan Ashcraft is working hard to put together the 1st Annual Diaper Dash 5K in Marana this weekend. The 5K is part of his Eagle Scout project. The entrance fee is one, unopened package of diapers. All of the diaper donations will go to the Diaper Bank.

So why diapers? Devan noticed the cost of diapers when his parents had a newborn. "I kinda noticed how he goes through diapers so fast. I was doing the research, I found out that for an average family it's over $100 a month just for diapers, " said Ashcraft.

The Diaper Dash 5K is Saturday at Gladden Farms Community Park, 12250 North Tangerine Road, Marana.

Registration: 6:30 - 7:30 a.m.
Run starts at 8:00 a.m.

The Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona is in DESPERATE need of adult diapers and children's pull ups and diapers size 4-6.

There's an event page on Facebook to promote the run and learn more.
