Description

_ The 2020 Mark Forester JAG 28 Birthday Walk:

For the 10th year in a row, we will hold a memorial walk in Haleyville on May 16, 2020, 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. 

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. 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 and some snacks at each rest stop.   

This is a unique event that you'll enjoy, despite the pain.  Come join us!
