Cross Country Community Service


Head Cross Country Coach Lee Atkinson has announced a community service project for his team, and he is inviting the public to also participate.  The Open Door Ministry in Clinton is in need of canned food items. They have requested all types of beans, yams, and fruit; however, ALL canned goods will be accepted!

On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday (June 19, 21, 22), the team will be collecting canned goods for the Open Door in the CHS Student Parking lot. Community members can drop off cans between 5:30 PM and 7:00 PM on those days. On Thursday, June 22, each cross country runner will run two cans from CHS to The Open Door as part of our workout. Any additional cans that we cannot carry will be transported to the Open Door.

Coach Atkinson notes, “This is an incredible opportunity to help our community at a time of year when this facility seems to be overlooked. We hope you will donate!”

Show your community spirit, Devil Nation!  GO BIG RED!
