Mark's Run

Mark's Run Landon School

The 17th annual Mark’s Run 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run will be held Sunday, May 6.

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.

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.
