10th Annual 5K Run/Walk On Your Marc

The 10th Annual 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, August 4th, 2018 at the Lower Providence Fire Department, in Eagleville, PA.

This is a community event which has been held each year since the passing of Staff Sgt Marc J Small on the weekend of his birthday.  This year, the 10th Annual event will be held on August 4th which is Marc’s actual birthday.  Since 2009, this event has raised over $275,000 for Small Steps in Speech to help children with the “small steps” needed to improve their speech and communication.

We encourage you to come join in the celebration of Marc’s life and the community that has supported Marc’s family and the mission of Small Steps in Speech over the past nine years.

Whether you are a runner or a walker or you just want to come out and support the cause, please do so.  Bring your friends, your family and your dogs (all dogs must be registered and wear an OYM bandana) and join the fun.  Your support will surely make the difference in the life of a child.

BETTER SPEECH AND HEARING MONTH!

May is our favorite month of the year at Small Steps in Speech because it is Better Speech and Hearing Month!!!  This is the month to raise awareness for those with communication disorders while helping these children with treatment/therapy.  May also brings Memorial Day at which time we honor SSG Marc Small, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  Marc’s memory is kept alive by the many people who support our organization and also by the hundreds of children whose lives have been impacted by Small Steps in Speech.

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!!!!!
