About This Activity

For the fourth year in a row, we will hold a memorial walk in Haleyville on May 17, 2014, 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 33 miles in honor of Mark's 33rd birthday, which is May 15. This walk will be held each year, with one mile added every year to represent his age.

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. We will carry the same baton as previous years . We anticipate the walk taking about 12-13 hours. There will be staging areas every 5 to 7 miles with water.  Bring your own snacks.  Lunch will be provided.
