Starting the Race

Mary’s Millennium Council Knights of Columbus has a long history working with Hanover Township to provide food to needy families.  Several years ago, we added our Knights Challenge 5K race to raise funds to stock the shelves of the food pantry.  We’ve set the date of October 5th for our sixth annual event.

The tall racer in the green shirt in this image is none other than our original Race Director, Jim Kaltinger.   He loves running in 5Ks, so a couple years ago he turned the reins over to our past Grand Knight, Bill Henderson and put on his running shoes.

We’ve updated our Knights Challenge website for this year’s race.   Besides including all the information for this year’s race, we’ve also included the results from the past years.   Browse the stories from the past races and check out the many images from race day.

Thank you to all that have sponsored and participated in the first five  5K event.   Please join us again this year to help us continue our mission of feeding the hungry of Hanover Township.

An Event for the Entire Family

In order to involve the entire family, we introduced a Kids Fun Dash for children under 10.  At the conclusion of the 5K Run / Walk main event (approximately 9:30 AM), registered Kiddies will have their very own race for fun.   The race will start in the parking lot and end at the same finish line as the 5K race. This was a huge success the last two years and we anticipate another great event for our 6th Annual Knights Challenge.

Joy of Crossing the Finish Line

There are many emotions on race day.  Shown here is one of our Ladies Auxiliary members, Monica, just as she crossed the finish line.   You can be as competitive as you want to.  It doesn’t matter if you are the first or last to cross the line, in our minds, you are all winners because you are racing for an excellent cause.   Thanks to our sponsors and all the participants, we have been able to donate thousands of dollars to the Hanover Township Food Pantry since our inaugural race.   We hope to be able to continue that trend this year.

This event takes a lot of preparation and help, especially on race day.   If you are interested in running, walking or volunteering, please use the contact form, and we’ll be happy to keep you informed as our planning continues.
