We’ve had a tradition for about 10 years… and for the fifth time in seven years now, after BOTH teams qualify, the coaches are proud to organize a book for the runners to read and enjoy on their trip down to Peoria. It contains information about the meet, a puzzle or two, and most importantly, letters from their families, friends, Kaneland alumni, community members and others who felt inclined to share.
We solicit these letter attachments to email, offering a chance to share advice, thoughts, quotes and inspiration to ALL of the runners on the team. If you know of anyone who may enjoy the chance to send something along to the TEAM, please have them do so.
· There will be ONE BOOK with letters to both the girls and boys teams.
Parents: ALL parents of runners on the State Teams should make a two-fold letter. First, please address your letter to your athlete. Let them know how proud you are of them. Write what is in your heart. They will likely save this book for years to come. Second, please add another section dedicated to the team(s). Advice, thoughts, inspiration or otherwise would be appropriate.
Guidelines: We will be assembling this book on Thursday. ALL LETTERS TO THE TEAM MUST BE RECEIVED VIA EMAIL ON THURSDAY at NOON. If you do not make the deadline, there will be no guarantee that your letter will be included in the bound edition. ALL EMAILED LETTERS SHOULD BE SENT TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
Letters should be kept to one page in length, if possible (small font).
As always, we appreciate the support that our extended Kaneland Community provides us. If you know of someone who would like to offer something to make this book even more special, please pass along the guidelines and details here.
Thank you for your help in making this special KXC tradition a reality.
