Mark’s Family has established a charity foundation in Mark’s name whose purpose is to raise money for a number of awesome causes, one of which is awarding scholarships to Haleyville High School Students. (I also personally know they have a number of projects in the works which will help educate and promote the ideals of sacrifice and Patriotism- lots of awesome things planned). All of the work to organize this event has been donated, and all of the money goes to Mark’s Foundation.
My understanding is that this will be a yearly event and awards will be given to winners in each age bracket. Should be a good time to remember a truly GREAT man.
It is a very long shot that I will be able to attend, but if my schedule allows me to be there, I would love. (I have already registered).
If you are in the area, it would be a great way to meet Mark’s family and friends and support a great cause.
