For the 9th year in a row, we will hold a memorial walk in Haleyville on May 18, 2019, in Mark's honor. Mark was KIA in Afghanistan September 29, 2010 during a firefight and while attempting to save a teammate. He was a patriot to the core.
For anyone who wants to participate, the walk will begin 6:00 am and will be a continuous 28 miles in honor of Mark's retired call sign - Jaguar 28.
The route will begin and end at Haleyville High School. We welcome anyone who wants to participate. The entry fee is $40 and supports The Mark Forester Foundation. The walk will go thru mostly rural areas of hilly Winston County. We anticipate the walk taking about 10.5 hours. There will be staging areas every 5 to 8 miles with water. Bring your own snacks. Lunch will be provided.
