Thank you to the volunteers and participants who made the 16th annual Mark’s Run 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run on May 7 such a success!
Mark's Run is held each year in memory of alumnus Mark Ferris ’94, who lost his battle with heart disease complicated by juvenile diabetes in 1999. The event raises money for the Mark Ferris '94 Memorial Scholarship, which is presented each year to a financially disadvantaged senior at Landon School who best exemplifies the qualities of enthusiasm and perseverance that Mark displayed during his life.

MARK VAUGHN FERRIS ’94
On December 13, 1999, a lifelong struggle against heart disease and juvenile diabetes overtook Mark Ferris ’94. A beloved brother, son, classmate and friend, Mark’s strength in fighting diabetes taught those around him that life is not measured in years but in character. Mark’s character — of laughter, kindness, patience, and love — will be remembered always.
