Lancers News · Lancers Participate in Football Week


On Saturday, November 17 a few student-athletes from Oakland Christian School participated in Football Week in Michigan Run presented by @MI_Kroger and Fox Sports. The 320-mile run that started in Mackinaw City took a football all the way to Ford Field Olympic torch style. OCS students ran 11 miles of the route from CVS in Waterford to the Kroger in Bloomfield Hills. Each student had the opportunity to run approximately a mile along the way handing it off to the next runner until Oakland Christian runner Ethan Townsend handed the ball to Avondale High School for their leg of the trip. Fox Sports filmed our students and segments aired during the Red Wings game Saturday night. Here is one segment that aired. Can you find the Lancers?
