Event Description

Come together on October 14th for the 1st annual "Miles for Mark" event, followed by a celebration of life at Palmer Park in Skippack, PA.  The event begins at 9 AM and is open to all runners, walkers, or anyone who wants to show their love and support.

We suddenly lost Mark on February 7th to his battle with mental health.  Mark was a one-of-a-kind individual who brightened the lives of those he knew.  He had a kind and generous heart, and anyone who knew Mark could always count on him.  He had a zest for life, and there was no activity he wouldn't try at least twice.  Mark was a joy to be around, with a great sense of humor, and never failed to bring a smile to everyone's face.  He was always finding ways to support his local community, whether buying bread from "Bakers on Broad" or getting his americano with cinnamon powder from "Blossom Cafe."  He was extremely loyal to his clean eating habits except for ice cream.  Mark was constantly trying to better himself every day, whether starting the day with meditation or ending the day by writing down his gratitude.  He was a devoted father to his three children, Bella, Bri, and Julian.  He was a successful business owner, avid runner, accomplished Spartan competitor,  best friend, brother, and my better half.

Even though Mark has passed away, he continues to show up for me and many others.  The days feel dark and empty and will never be the same without him, but having these "signs" brings peace and comfort in knowing he is still here but just in a different light.  

This event is an opportunity to honor Mark and show your support for a cause that touches many lives. I look forward to seeing you next month!
