Mark's Run 2019

Run for Mark’s Legacy!

Mark's Run is held in honor of Mark Ferris '94 who lost his lifelong struggle with heart disease complicated by type 1 diabetes at the young age of 25. 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. The Mark Ferris '94 Memorial Scholarship is presented each year to a financially disadvantaged senior at Landon School who best exemplifies the qualities of enthusiasm and perseverance which Mark displayed during his life. Over the past 17 years, Mark's Run has raised $650,000 for the Mark Ferris '94 Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Please contact Agustin "Gus" Umanzor of Landon School at or 301-320-1007 with questions. And please click here  to learn more about Homecoming and Alumni Reunions Weekend. We look forward to seeing you at the race!
