As you know our dear friend Mark passed away Saturday, November 4, 2023 after a brave battle with lung cancer. To honor Mark, Kalamazoo Area Runners invites you to attend a memorial service immediately following "The Run Around Gull Lake", an event Mark founded and loved so much. If you would also like to attend the run, please do so (Run Around Gull Lake registration). We are dedicating all of the miles ran or walked that day in Mark's honor. We will be keeping track at the event. We will also announce Mark's permeant memorial at the event. Please join us to remember mark and share stories about Mark. All are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
Please note, any donations received at the event, or through your registration process, will be forwarded by KAR in honor of Mark to the Scholarship Fund at eKuthuleni Primary School which will be used to pay for tuition and school expenses.
