Rally for Cross Roads 2021

Join us for the 7th Annual Rally for Cross Roads! The Rally for Cross Roads is an annual fundraising event for the Cross Roads Annual Fund that is fun for all ages. This year, we are excited to combine previous events and host an on-site run/walk race along with an afternoon of activities, including a volleyball game, to have double the fun as we raise funds to support camp.

On Saturday October 2, lace up your running (or walking!) shoes to take part in the Rally for Cross Roads Run/Walk. All ages and abilities are invited to participate. You can sign up to compete in the 5K race to earn a prize, or for the family friendly 2k run/walk.

You are invited to come to Cross Roads to race on-site, or participate by running wherever you live! Please see below for the on-site schedule of events, which will include a worship service and afternoon of fun after the race. If you want to come to camp to help cheer on the runners, please register as part of the "Cheer Squad" so that we know you are coming.
