The first annual Mark Forester Price of Freedom Race will be May 14, 2011. This date was picked for one reason–Mark’s birthday weekend. It’s actually May 15, but Saturday works better for everyone.
The purpose of this race is to celebrate Mark’s life and to raise money for The Mark Forester Foundation; to fund The Mark Forester Price of Freedom Scholarship.
The race will take place in his hometown of Haleyville, AL. It will begin and end at Haleyville High School. We appreciate anyone who signs up for the race. And many thanks to the sponsors, volunteers, Haleyville City Schools, and city of Haleyville for helping make this happen.
Maps for the race are available at the end of this post.
