Final Prep 2019 Knights Challenge

0 News No Comments

Online Registration is now CLOSED – Register using Form

Six years ago Mary’s Millennium Council #12801 Knights of Columbus, Streamwood, IL, was looking for a creative way to increase their yearly assistance to the Hanover Township Food Pantry.  Jim Kaltinger, an avid runner, approached the council with his idea about conducting a 5K race.   As an avid runner, he knew something about what was involved, but that challenge didn’t stop him from suggesting we sponsor an event.  The council approved the idea overwhelmingly and we embarked on a journey which culminated in October 2014 with a successful event.

Final preparations are underway for the sixth annual Knights Challenge 5K Run/Walk which will be held October 5, 2019, starting at 8:30 AM.  The event, sponsored by the Knights and Ladies Auxiliary in conjunction with St. John the Evangelist Catholic Parish, located at 300 N. Park Blvd., Streamwood, benefits the Hanover Township Food Pantry.   The race course is USATF certified #IL-14131-JW.

We’ve expanded two years ago, including a Kids Fun Dash for children ages 3-10.   At the conclusion of the 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.   All children will receive a special t-shirt and participation ribbon.  Refreshments and awards will follow the events.

Medals will be presented to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female winners in each five year age category. In addition, the overall male and female winners will also receive special awards.   A technical T-shirt will be given to all pre-registered participants.

We are still looking for runners / walkers and children for the Dash.  Do you know someone that likes to race? 

Online registration is still open (click here).  Registrations are also being accepted by mail or in person at St. John’s Parish Office.  (Download Registration Form Here).  We will also take registration the day of the event from 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM at St. John the Evangelist Parish Center.    There is special pricing for families of 3 or more, students, and Fun Dash participants.  Thank you for your support.

The sixth annual Knights Challenge 5K Run / Walk / Kids Fun Dash is just a little over a month away as we celebrate this Labor Day holiday. Despite working hard, many families in the Hanover Township area are unable to put enough food on the table for their families, and they turn to the generosity of people like you to help them.

The Knights of Columbus and Ladies Auxiliary of Mary’s Millennium Council of Streamwood has been a supporter of the Hanover Township Food Pantry even before we started this 5K event. We’d collect food monthly, and provide financial assistance, but with over 700 families to feed monthly, that just wasn’t enough. That is why we started this race six years ago.

There are several ways you can help. Register to run or walk in the event. Share information about the 5k with friends, coworkers, and family. Select a team or individual that is registered already, and donate to support them. If you have a business, you could be a sponsor and help us promote the event. Browse our website to learn more about the event or contact us at info@kofc12801.org

Thank you for your support.  Please register today.  It’s easy to register Online or by using our Registration Form.

Last year’s 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.   Six 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.

Why We Host Knights Challenge 5K

The picture above was taken at St. John the Evangelist parking lot on July 2nd. That morning, Hanover Township Food Pantry was onsite with a mobile food truck to distribute food to needy families. This was made possible by donations from the Ladies Auxiliary of Mary’s Millennium Knights of Columbus. Several members of the Knights and Ladies Auxiliary joined forces with Hanover Township and other volunteers to distribute the food to 90 families.

This was an extra event for those families. The food pantry feeds over 700 families each month. Cash donations go a long way to restock shelves and make mobile truck distribution events like this possible. The pantry is able to purchase food for pennies on the dollar.

We need Your Help!  Sign up today to run or walk in our 6th Annual Knights Challenge.  There are discounted rates for families, students, and teams.  Ask your coworkers, family, and friends to sponsor your participation as well.  Together we can feed the hungry of Hanover Township.

It’s More Fun Than Running / Walking Alone !

Thank you for considering running or walking in our Knights Challenge 5k.   We hope that you will have fun while helping us raise funds for our very worthwhile cause – feeding the hungry of Hanover Township.

We want you to have the most fun on race day, so we’ve introduced Teams this year so that you can partner with family, friends, or co-workers to cheer each other on to the finish line.  Running with a friend (or a group!) really is so much more fun than running alone. When you register, or anytime after that, you can create a team on our registration site.

Once the race is over, a team is there to celebrate, and relax after the accomplishments of the day. Plus, they’ll keep people going and motivate them to finish strong if they’re starting to feel sluggish mid-race.

Need Encouragement ?

Before the race even starts, a team is a built-in training support system. A dedicated team will spend some time running together before the race starts, getting to know each member’s quirks and pace. An individual can push off or ignore scheduled training runs, but a team won’t let them get away with skipping them! Besides support, team members also make for great accountability partners, and will help members to be completely prepared come race day.

Share Team Page to Get Pledges

This year besides awarding an overall male and female winner along with first, second, and third place finishers in each age category (male & female) we will be awarding a prize to the Team that raises the most donations.   It’s easy for you to raise pledges via our registration page.   Once you’ve registered, anyone can donate to support either an individual or a team.

As a team, you’ll be able to customize your own page – upload an image, set a goal, and track your progress.   Share that link on social media, via email, or simply pass it along on a flyer, to gain support for your team.   You can create your own t-shirts if you like (we can provide you with logo if you want to incorporate that into your design).   Together we can make this year’s Knights Challenge the largest to date.  If you need any help forming a team just contact us at info@kofc12801.org.
