Johannesburg Lewiston Area Schools Cross Country Team
Posted By: Craig DeHoog (August 12, 2016)
As a runner myself, I know the dedication it takes to be a distance runner. As the coach of JL's cross country team, I've watched young adults become confident student athletes, committed to hard work and self-discipline. Their inner strength to the sport has inspired their peers, family members, and the community to lead more active, healthy lives. Currently, our uniforms are hand-me-downs from the high school track team. They are faded, torn, and lack a cross country logo. In fact, we don't even have enough of them to field our growing team. I'm asking for funds to purchase uniforms so my team can better represent our schools and community pride! Furthermore, we believe if people can identify us and see our hard work, then we will be able to inspire others to be active and healthy as well, one cross country meet at a time!
