Now Accepting Proposals for our Community Contribution Program
The Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon has been a success due to the unbelievable support within the community.  Each year the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon (CHKM), the premier event of the Knoxville Track Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, sets aside funds for its community contribution program.

In an effort to support the community and to improve lives through healthy programs, the CHKM Advisory Committee will be accepting proposals for programs seeking funding from the community contribution program now through August 1, 2016. To view the Request for Proposals, click here.

FITTEST SCHOOL CHALLENGE – Results are in for the Fittest School Challenge!
Thanks to a sponsorship by the Childhood Obesity Coalition at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, we are proud to award $4,000 to area schools through our 2016 Fittest School Challenge.

The Fittest School Challenge is a competition between area elementary schools that awards winners based upon percentage of participation. Each child that participated in the April 2, 2016 Covenant Kids Run earned one point for their school. We tallied up each school’s respective points and divided that by the total enrollment of that school to determine their participation percentage. We will award prize money to the top ten elementary schools in a nine county radius (Anderson, Blount, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Roane, Sevier, and Union). More than one school in each county is eligible to win prize money. The breakdown and winning schools are as follows:

1st – Kingston Elementary                       $1,000                            6th – Lanier Elementary                $200
2nd – Episcopal School of Knoxville     $800                               7th –    Concord Christian School  $200
3rd – Highland Park Elementary           $500                               8th – Greenback School                  $200
4th – Nature’s Way Montessori              $400                               9th – Loudon Elementary              $200
5th – Eaton Elementary                           $300                             10th – Sequoyah Elementary           $200
