Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Awards Grants



Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon officials presented $8,000 in grants to five organizations that support healthy living in East Tennessee.

The grants are part of the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon’s Community Contribution Program, now in its sixth year. Grant recipients include the Emerald Youth Foundation, Knoxville Family Justice Center, Beauty Hunters, YWCA Knoxville & the Tennessee Valley and Survivors Fitness Foundation.

The Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon and the Knoxville Track Club have a longstanding history of reinvesting in the community. Since 2005, a total of more than $170,000 has been donated to support projects, including the placement of mile markers along local city and county greenways, the addition of trails in South Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness and a golf cart to patrol and clean the greenways.

Past grant recipients include Young-Williams Animal Center, Ijams Nature Center and Legacy Parks Foundation.
