15th Annual Mark's Run
DC Road Runners
The 15th annual Mark's Run 5k and 1mile Fun Run is held in honor of Mark Ferris (Landon '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 Fund is presented to a financially disadvantaged senior at Landon School each year who best exemplifies the qualities of enthusiasm and perseverance which Mark displayed during his life.
