Marc's FamilyOYM 2016

On August 6, 2016, over 500 runners, walkers, volunteers, canine friends and their supporters gathered to honor SSG Marc Small for the 8th Annual “On Your Marc” Run/Walk. This event was started in memory of SSG Marc J. Small, U.S. Army Special Forces, who lost his life in Afghanistan in 2009. It was gratifying to have so many people come out to honor Marc and to raise $45,000 for Small Steps in Speech.
