Registration Form

Pledge Form


Each child will obtain sponsorships of at least $35.00 for the run. We ask that the children actually raise the money for the marathon themselves.  They should ask friends and relatives to sponsor them for the event.   They can be sponsored on either a fee per mile basis or just a flat fee donation.  Trophies will be awarded for the top finishers in each age bracket.  The Knights will sponsor a post marathon celebration with entertainment for the children.  There will be a food court for lunch as well.  There will be a sports memorabilia auction with several different pieces available at the end of the marathon.
