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.

Back by Popular Demand This Year

Last year we 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. This was a huge success last year and we anticipate another great event for our 5th Annual Knights Challenge.

We are once again offering discounted 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.

Fathers Against Hunger

Fathers Day- save the date
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

Times haven’t changed  much since 1882.  There are still families in need, and the Knights of Columbus is there to render assistance.   We have partnered with Hanover Township Food Pantry for many years to help provide food to families in need.  This is our 5th Annual Knights Challenge 5K which benefits the food pantry directly.

Hanover Townwhip Food Pantry helps more than 800 families each month.  Keeping their shelves full is always a struggle, but by generous support from the community, they are able to continue their mission of caring for those families.  Through your generosity, by sponsoring, participating in the Knights Challenge, or making a monetary donation, Mary’s Millennium Council is able to continue playing our role in serving the community.

We wish all the Fathers a Happy Fathers Day 2018.   We ask you to consider bringing your family to our event or finding some other way to help.   Once again we are offering discounts for families that register for the race and even having an event for young children to participate in a kids dash, which is tailored to their age bracket.   Please share this with friends, families, and companies.  We are still in need of sponsors for the event as well as teams that will help raise additional funds.   Thank you for your consideration and assistance in Feeding God’s Children in Need.

2018 Knights Challenge

Planning Meeting

 

6:30 – 8:30 PM

St. John’s Parish Office

Conference Room A

 

 

We are less than five months away from our Fifth Annual Knights Challenge 5K Run / Walk / Kids Dash which benefits the Hanover Township Food Pantry.  This website has been updated with sponsor forms, registration forms, and links to our online registration site.  Since this is our fifth year holding this event, five months of planning seems appropriate.  Fortunately, we have several veterans at the helm organizing the event, including Bill Henderson, Race Director,  Gary Pappin, Webmaster, and Race Time, who helps us with online registration and event day timing / race results.

It takes a village to have a successful event.  We work closely with Hanover Township Food Pantry, St. John the Evangelist Church, our Ladies Auxiliary, and the Village of Streamwood to coordinate the event.  Several volunteers are needed to help plan the event, as well as assist on race day.   We invite our fellow Brother Knights from other councils to also get involved this year.   We will be happy to attend one of your council meetings to discuss how we can work together for this great charitable cause.

We are open to suggestions from participants in past years’ 5K races as well.   Together we can help Feed His Flock.

2018 Knights Challenge

Planning for

5th Annual Knights Challenge
Has Officially Begun

 

We’ve gotten approval from St. John’s parish to hold our fifth annual Knights Challenge on Saturday, October 6, 2018 starting at 8:30 AM.  We will be working with Race Time once again for online registration and race day support.  Once the online registration page has been created, we’ll update our website with the direct link.   Meanwhile, registration is open at the Parish Office or by mail by completing the Registration Form.

Last year we introduced a Kids Fun Dash, which followed the main Knights Challenge 5k Run / Walk. It was a huge success – the kids just loved having their very own race. We hope that there will be even more participants this year making the Knights Challenge a family affair. What better way to instill charity into the lives of our children than be helping others together as a family?

We race so that others may be fed. The proceeds from this event supports the Hanover Township Food Pantry. Even before we started the Knights Challenge races five years ago, Mary’s Millennium Council has supported the good works done by Hanover Township. Your participation in the Knights Challenge helps us to expand our financial support.

Our website has been updated with more information about this year’s event. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date as our planning continues. We are also looking for sponsors to help defray our costs, so please consider helping in that capacity or spreading the word to friends, families, and businesses you frequent. Thank you in advance for your support.
