The 4:12 Run is a 5K run that is designed to raise money for the Senior Bible Quizzing Program in the United Pentecostal Church International and also donates portion of its earnings to St. Baldrick's Foundation to help combat children's cancer.
"What is Bible Quizzing?" you ask. 
Bible Quizzing is a ministry designed to put the Word of God in the hearts of young people. It helps young people mature in intellect, attitude, emotions and most of all, helps them grow spiritually. There are very few other areas in which young people are able to socialize with so many other godly youth on a regular basis. While the ministry assists in so many other aspects of a young person’s life, it also is extremely competitive and exciting!
Bible Quizzing requires disciple and responsibility of individual young people and tests their ability to cooperate as a team. An Experienced quizzer must learn over 500 selected verses from the word of God to be able to compete efficiently and must be able to answer questions from any of those verses. The questions can range from having 1 part to multiple parts, can be a cross-reference (from multiple verses or chapters or books) or quotation in which a quizzer must quote a verses or verses verbatim. A quizzer must devote much time in these verses to be competitive. The verse remains true: God’s word will not return to Him void.
To the casual observer, Bible quizzing is a sport in which two teams match knowledge, speed, memory, and quickness of response against one another on a designated portion of Scripture. Quizzing, however, offers much more than just competition and sport. The program involves falling deeply in love with the Word of God. By becoming involved in memorization, young people develop a love and respect for the Bible. The Word is planted in their hearts and dynamically changes their lives. (Source:
