2020 CHKM Community Partner is Emerald Youth Foundation!

The Knoxville Track Club and the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Advisory Council are pleased to announce that the 2020 CHKM Community Partner will be Emerald Youth Foundation. Our partnership will support the Emerald Force Track Program, the only urban youth-serving track program in Knoxville.

The Knoxville Track Club (KTC) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The annual Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon is KTC’s primary fundraiser. To help produce this event, KTC relies on the partnership of many like-minded community partners. This fall we received applications from organizations that have a mission of community wellness, fitness, and/or engaging youth in athletics. We were overwhelmed with the number of quality applications that we received. The committee had a difficult decision determining which organization to select, however, ultimately chose Emerald Youth Foundation. To learn more about Emerald Youth Foundation, click here.

Since 2005, KTC has donated over $220,000 to local non-profits through the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon’s community contribution program, and we are excited about our 2020 partnership with Emerald Youth Foundation.

The Knoxville Track Club (KTC) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The annual Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon is KTC’s primary fundraiser. To help produce this event, KTC relies on the partnership of many like-minded community partners. If your organization has a mission of community wellness, fitness, and/or engaging youth in athletics, we are interested in speaking with your organization.

Since 2005, KTC has donated over $220,000 to local non-profits through the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon’s community contribution program. These recipients were formally selected after each year’s event. Starting with the 2020 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon, KTC will select one local non-profit organization before the event to be its 2020 CHKM Community Partner. The 2020 CHKM Community Partner will receive the community contribution funds from the 2020 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon as well as valuable tools, insight, and connections to establish a targeted fundraising campaign. In return, KTC asks that the 2020 CHKM Community Partner offer its skills and resources to support event-specific operations.

New applications must be submitted by all interested non-profit organizations each year. To apply to be the 2020 CHKM Community Partner, applications must be received by November 8, 2019.
