Plymouth High School cross country runners participated in several community service projects this fall, carrying on what has become an annual team tradition.
Team members completed three stints of service to the school and surrounding community, for the sixth year in a row:
- In late September, the team ran a “scenic route” from PHS to Project Angel Hugs in downtown Plymouth, where they made Halloween cards and bags for children who are battling childhood cancer. The project was particularly meaningful this year as classmate Mitch Arnold is recovering from a bone marrow transplant.
- In mid-October, following a workout on the PHS grounds, the members of the girls’ state qualifying team spent an hour picking up trash around the school.
- During Thanksgiving weekend, 22 team members rang bells for the Salvation Army at the Walmart store in Plymouth. The runners gave a combined 13 hours of service.
