-Each year, millions of Americans face hunger. The pandemic has only increased the number of those in need turning to food banks. Brighton XC has partnered with Michigan’s dairy farmers and Busch’s Fresh Market to help donate milk to those in need.

Stop into Busch's in Brighton to raise a gallon with us! Not only will you be making a difference in your community, but Brighton XC will also receive a Chocolate Milk Drive Grant if they meet their goal of gallon donations before October 10th! #BuschsMilkDrive #MilkMeansMore

We received clarification that volunteers younger than 16 may participate as long as they're in high school. Each shift is approximately 8-9 hours long. Please note the kickoff time hasn't been set for the October 23rd game. Athletes can sign up here. Details are here.
