9th Annual On Your Marc 5K Run/Walk

Our 9th Annual On Your Marc 5K Run/Walk was held on Saturday, August 5th in Eagleville, PA.
We enjoyed another fabulous turnout.  The streets and fairgrounds were filled with over 500 enthusiastic runners, walkers, registered dogs, volunteers and supporters! We were honored by the participation of the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group from Ft. Bragg (Marc’s group) as well as flag lines presented by members of Warrior Watch and Rolling Thunder.
 
With the support of sponsors, entry fees and donations, we raised more than $45,000 for the Small Steps in Speech Foundation. This means so much to us as it gives the foundation, founded by Marc’s fiancée Amanda Charney, the ability to continue to help children with communication.  In the last 9 years, more than $1,000,000 has been awarded to children with speech and language needs, with significant funding from this event.  We cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness, their generosity and continued support of this organization.  We are also extremely grateful for the many volunteers who came out in the heat to make this event a success!!!!!
