The Close For A Cause Pool Scouts Initiative

Hands in a heart shape with water in the background and says Close for a Cause | Team Carson ElizabethSeptember is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and for the second year in a row, Pool Scouts of Memphis is excited to be participating in Close For A Cause! Pool Scouts owners, Jake and Kinsey McCutchen, have been long time supporters of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their great cause to end childhood cancer. During the month of September, Pool Scouts of Memphis workers will be sporting St. Jude shirts and hats while performing pool closing services to show their support and to raise awareness.

Close for a Cause is a fundraising initiative that was started by Pool Scouts of Memphis last year for pool closing season. During the month of September, for every pool closing scheduled, Pool Scouts will donate $20 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our pool closing service is $243, and gets your swimming pool completely ready for winter. The service includes winterizing your pool and equipment as well as installing the pool cover. Last year, Pool Scouts of Memphis was able to donate $1,200 through Close for a Cause, and they are hoping to raise even more this year!

Although this is only the second year that Pool Scouts of Memphis is participating in Close for a Cause, this will actually be the fourth year that both Jake and Kinsey are participating in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend. They sign up each year to run the half marathon as part of Team Carson Elizabeth, where they run a course that goes throughout downtown and through the St. Jude campus. Patients, their families and onlookers gather to watch and cheer.
