Other Notes

The Cross-Country course consists of 2 equal 1.55 mile loops and is relatively easy to follow. Each loop includes a mile trail through the woods, with the remainder of the loop around the park. The course is mostly dirt and grass but it includes some asphalt.

Note: Guys who cannot break 32 minutes should run the MS race. (Girls should use their best judgment.)

Directions to VaDuMar Park:

Take Exit 75 off of I-85 and go toward Boiling Springs. (Take a left back over the interstate if coming from Greenville.)

Go about 2.5 miles on Highway 9. You will pass an Ingles and then a shopping center with a McDonalds on the right. Immediately after you pass the McDonalds shopping center, you will see McMillan Road. Take a right on McMillan.

Follow McMillan Rd. about 1 mile. The park is on the left.

Spartanburg Christian Academy

Cross Country Mission Project 2019

Be a Blessing

At Spartanburg Christian Academy, we like to use our home Cross Country meet as a way to give

back to our surrounding community. Instead of charging admission, we ask you to participate in

our mission project. This year we will continue that tradition by asking teams who attend our

meet to support Hendrix Elementarys Blessing Bags.

Hendrix Elementary - Blessing Bags are given to selected Hendrix students that depend on the

school for their meals. When school is out, these students often dont have anything at home to

eat. By bringing nonperishable items (listed below), you become part of the blessing. We pack

the bags as a team and deliver them to Hendrix for distribution throughout the year.

Please join us in supporting this worthy project. If you choose to donate monetarily, please bring

cash or checks made payable to Spartanburg Christian Academy.

What to bring for Hendrix Blessing Bags:

Individual microwaveable macaroni and cheese bowls or packets

Individual pop-top Chef Boy Ardee, Spaghetti-Os or other hot meals

Individual bags of Goldfish or Cheeze-It crackers

Individual bags of pretzels

Cereal bars

Granola bars

Single-serve boxes of cereal

Apple sauce

Small fruit cups

Juice boxes or non-refrigerated milk boxes

These students are K4 through Fourth Grade, so think simple

preparation (and nut free, if possible) when choosing food items.

Last year SCAs Cross Country team was able to pack approximately 350 blessing bags for

students at Hendrix Elementary! These bags provide a meal option for students who might

otherwise go hungry over the weekends or during school holidays. Over 2,300 food items and

$347 was collected.

This allowed us to provide the following in each gallon-sized bag:

* a hot meal (either Chef Boy Ardee, mac & cheese, noodles, etc),


* a cereal or breakfast item,


* a juice box,


* cheese crackers,


* granola bars


* other snack items.


I hope and pray that our runners were able to see how their efforts can make a difference in

those who are less fortunate and blessed than us.

Here are the item counts of what we collected, in addition to the $347.

111 Mac & cheese

60 chef boy-ardee

19 raman/instant noodles

22 boxes of cereal

44 fruit cups

186 applesauce

12 fruit sticks

12 raisin boxes

140 juice boxes

435 goldfish

276 packs of crackers

309 snack food items (jello, cookies, etc.)

701 granola bars

===========

2,327 pieces ***

**This does not include at least 40 full-sized cans and boxes of beans, corn, pastas, etc.

These cans are not something we can pass along to students BUT last year there were several

students whose homes were involved in a fire, and they were able to pass along the full-sized

food items to help these families. Still a blessing, just not in a bag :)
