Local resident Christopher Boucher, a Life Scout with Troop 45, has registered for the Double Dog Dare 2015 Challenge. On Sept. 10, those registered will have the chance to rappel down the U.S. Bank plaza building in downtown Minneapolis. The Double Dog Dare Challenge is a fundraiser benefiting the Boy Scouts of America. Participants raise $1,000 for the opportunity to rappel down the 23-story U.S. Bank Plaza headquartered in downtown Minneapolis. It's 321 feet from the roof to the pavement below.

As a Boy Scout, Boucher has participated in area service projects such as assisting with re-shingling St. Andrew's Church storage shed, Northland Arboretum storm damage clean-up and set-up for their annual picnic, feeding Nordic Ski Club Members and volunteers after clearing the French Rapids ski trails in the fall, assisting with Memorial Day celebrations in Brainerd, Crosby Fourth of July Parade celebration and brush clean-up at Camp Vanasek to name a few.

He completed his Climbing Merit badge this summer at Waite Park which sparked his interest in finding more opportunities to use his climbing and rappelling skills.

After completing this challenge, Boucher plans to begin the process for the Trail to Eagle Scout.
