City Administrator David McKnight will be running 100 miles of city streets and trails for the Rambling River Center.

City Administrator David McKnight is starting his Running for Rambling River Center (RRC) fundraiser to buy a new gym-quality treadmill for the center’s Jack and Bev McKnight Fitness Room.

“As the city administrator, I see this as a great way to support our seniors who have done so much for our community over the years,” said McKnight. 

McKnight will be accepting donations to run 100 miles of city streets and trails from April 1 to June 30. Fundraising will begin March 1 and his goal is to raise $6,000 for the treadmill.

“With the pandemic and the closure of local gyms twice over the past year and being a member of the Rambling River Center, I have used the fitness center a lot,” said McKnight. “This use has shown me that there is a need for some equipment upgrades.” 

In 2009, the McKnight family made a donation to purchase the naming rights of the Jack and Bev McKnight Fitness Room. The family chose that room specifically because it is the former city council chambers, where David and his father, Jack McKnight, spent time serving on the city council. 

Donations to the Running for RRC fundraiser can be made by the mile or in a specific dollar amount. All of the proceeds raised will go directly to the purchase of the treadmill. Checks can be made out to the “City of Farmington” and they can be mailed or dropped off at City Hall, 430 Third St.

If you have any questions about this fundraiser or if you would like to donate, email David McKnight at DMcKnight@FarmingtonMN.gov
