In 1985 a courageous man stepped forward and dared to be a Good Knight. He and two associates wanted to make a difference in the war on childhood innocence (READ MORE HERE)
That man was Sir Edward Jagen, a retired Washington D.C. P.D. Major Crimes Investigator. Since the onset of his quest, GKCEN and its all volunteer staff have reached over 21 million families nationwide.
2015 marks 30 years of successfully keeping children safe and raising awareness of communities at large.
On September 26, 2015 we celebrated our 30 years with friends, family, dignitaries and most of all the Good Knight kids by our side. We had a wonderful awards ceremony and 17 of our volunteers received Volunteer service awards from the governor of Maryland.
We looked through memory books at the rich history our organization had created together. Had fun during “camp style” activities that parents and kids participated in together!
Children that were knighted in the early days now have kids of their own (boy are we getting old!). So much love and kindness is put into all the work we do and the Good Knight kids and their families feel every ounce of it!
We stood up and honored Sir Edward by reciting the creed he created–
I dare to be a Good Knight.
I dare to stand alone.
I dare to have a purpose bold,
And dare to make it known.
Honor, respect and courage,
Together are my creed.
As a humble peaceful warrior
I am sure to succeed!
We were honored to serve and proud to continue! Won’t you think about joining us? Our volunteers get paid in the great feeling that have from helping out. Money can’t buy what they receive!
