The Miles for Mark 5k & 1.5-Mile Fun Run/Walk was started in 2019 as a way to support the American Cancer Society in honor of our Dad/Husband (Mark) who fought esophageal cancer. The first annual Miles for Mark race was set for Mark’s birthday on August 9th, 2019. Unfortunately, Mark’s fight with esophageal cancer ended far too soon, one week before race day, and he was unable to see the race come to fruition.
The inaugural Miles for Mark event was quite a success. We raised over $5,000 for the American Cancer Society to fight for a world without cancer. This year we want to make the 2020 Miles for Mark an even bigger success.
