About This Activity

The CJ Wolfpack Memorial Run is a 5K and mile fun run that honors both CJ Jones and mission works  in Haiti.  CJ was a wonderful young man who was large in both stature and in his love for both people and God.  CJ was a greeter at the front door, the kids best buddy, the biggest cheerleader for your baptism, and a avid believer that exercise and God went hand in hand .  He competed in many mud runs, 5Ks, and any exercise class he could take at Gold's Gym.  His greatest gifts were his belief that no matter what challenges lied ahead God would guide him.  Last year CJ took a two week mission trip to Romaina.  There he saw a great need for children and the people of several of the towns.  He prayed with many to seek God in all they did and needed.  After that trip CJ vowed to go back each year and help those in need in various places around the world.  Unfortunatley, CJ's life was cut short.  It is our vision to help CJ continue to make a impact of those children and many more. 

Crossroads Church, located in Douglasville, GA, began missionary work in Haiti in 2013. To date, Crossroads Church has provided a community water filtration system which includes a sanitation system, food programs, a monthly sponsorship program benefitting the children, along with building a school and church after acquiring 2.5 acres of land. Their future ministry goals include expanding the school, feeding programs, adding a trade school, plus a transitional home for orphans, and medical clinic. Missionary work was very important to CJ. To honor him and support the work Crossroads Church wants to provide Haiti, funds from the  CJ’s Memorial Wolfpack Run, will go directly to this missionary work.
