Celebrate Your Strength with Maggi Thorne’s BOW Patch!


Blog_2018_Maggie-Thorne-Patch

Have you heard? The new BOW Patch, part of a special collaboration with popular Ninja Warrior competitor Maggi Thorne, is available now through your local Juliette’s Boutique!

The BOW Patch is a celebration of inner and outer strength. It signifies not just overcoming obstacles but also celebrating your true self – important lessons that Maggi loves to share with Girl Scouts.

“In Girl Scouts, girls take the lead in discovering their own power,” Maggi says. “My hope is to help girls know their true selves and to never stop dreaming as they discover their purpose.”

Maggi, who lives in Lincoln, is a former Girl Scout. She dreamed up a patch featuring her signature pink bow and later worked with Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska staff to turn her dream into reality.

Girl Scouts can earn the BOW Patch by completing entrepreneurship, service, and empowerment activities. Full details are below.

Maggi’s athletic resurgence began with elite obstacle racing, including the World’s Toughest Mudder, where she placed second after running 75 miles and completing 330 obstacles. She then went on to become a four-time, fan favorite American Ninja Warrior competitor.

True to her Girl Scout roots, Maggi is dedicated to making the world a better place. She travels the country as a motivational speaker; advocates for children in poverty as a global ambassador for the Convoy of Hope feedONE initiative; and is a board member of the nonprofit SELFiD, an organization dedicated to youth health.
