A local Boy Scout isn't afraid to get his hands dirty to raise money for a once-in-a-lifetime hiking trip.
A Shelby Township Boy Scout has learned early in life that you never give up on your dreams and you do whatever it takes - be it scooping dog poop or returning hundreds of bottles - to make it happen.
