Virtual Mark's Run 2020
Run for Mark’s Legacy!
From October 10-12, we encourage the Landon Community to engage in a socially-distant run or walk for Mark's Run 2020. You can choose to complete the 5k or 1 mile fun run on one of the days over the weekend. Share your achievement by posting pictures or videos of yourself completing the 5k or 1 mile fun run on social media, and don’t forget to use their hashtags! #MarksRun2020 #HonorYourBrother2020 #StrongerTogether2020. Registrations made by October 12 will receive their shirt and socks once the event concludes via mail or a scheduled, socially distant on-campus pickup.
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.
Please contact MarksRun@landon.net with questions. We look forward to virtually cheering you on at the race!
