At the 2015 Spanish River Cross Country Invitational, more than 5 large bins of school supplies, shoes, insoles, and laces were collected and donated to a S. Florida charity, In Jacob's Shoes. Our success is thanks to you - the participating coaches and teams!

We here on the Spanish River Cross Country team were so inspired by the generosity shown that we've decided to collect supplies at this year's meet, and make the "On The Right Course" collection drive a permanent part of the Spanish River Invitational.

Please be part of the 2016 "On The Right Course" collection drive, benefiting In Jacob's Shoes, a non-profit organization that provides new and gently used shoes, insoles, laces, and school supplies to children in need. Grants and scholarships are also provided!

How to get involved? Bring new or gently used shoes, new insoles, new shoelaces, backpacks and school supplies to the Spanish River Invitational and drop the items off in designated collection area (near Coaches' tent). All items will be donated to In Jacob's Shoes.

We hope you will join us in helping those less fortunate stay ON THE RIGHT COURSE. Feel free to contact Alex Kline with questions; or visit

Thank you in advance,
Spanish River High School Cross Country
