The Knights Challenge may be completed, but the need to feed hungry of Hanover Township remains.   For many years, Mary’s Millennium has made the Hanover Township Food Pantry one of their primary charitable causes.   Four years ago, we introduced the Knights Challenge 5k in order to step up our ability to support this worthy cause.   Through the help of many participants and sponsors, we have been able to donate thousands of dollars to the food pantry.   There is still much more to be done to feed the hungry.

Kids Fun Dash

Fun for the Whole Family

One of the Knights of Columbus core principles is Charity.    Children learn by example, so what better way to instill charitable giving, then to feed the hungry of Hanover Township by participating in the Knights Challenge as a Family.

We’ve expanded the Knights Challenge Run / Walk to include age appropriate events, including a Kids Fun Dash for children ages 3-10.   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.

We also have introduced Family (3 or more participants registering together) and Student (18 and under) pricing options, so that more families and youths can participate this year.

Register now to guarantee your official Kids Fun Dash race shirt, #1 race bib, ribbon award, sticker, and other special treats. Goodies only guaranteed for preregistered participants.
