Description

_The 2021 #HonorMark 5K, 10K & Kids Run:

#HonorMark: The purpose of the #HonorMark initiative is to carry on a local hero’s legacy of service and sacrifice by giving back to the community he served through charitable donations. 

Mark Edward Hummeldorf served our nation in the armed forces with the Marine Corps for 4 years and as a firefighter/paramedic for Southside Fire and EMS, Savannah Fire Rescue, and Parris Island Fire Rescue. During his time in the Marine Corps, Mark was awarded the Purple Heart for his bravery, which he also exemplified daily in his actions as a first responder. Unfortunately, our community lost this hero on November 22, 2017 when Mark was tragically taken from us at the young age of 33; he left behind his beautiful wife and two wonderful children.

Call to action: Mark’s enthusiastic attitude and service before self would want us to put our running shoes on and join his family for our 4th annual event. We are encouraging everyone to come together to celebrate and honor Mark and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We invite everyone to sign up and walk or run, whether it be in-person or virtually, to continue the tradition we have started. If you choose the virtual option, share your times and post a picture with the hashtag #HonorMark5k and #SayTheirName! All proceeds go to the local community as well as helping to support college funds for Mark's children. Mark may be off duty, but you’re not! Join the fun and register today!

Impact of the #HonorMark 5k: #HonorMark strives to give back to the community and families of first responders and military in need. We are humbled to share that #HonorMark was able to support the Ebert's, a local family from Richmond Hill, GA, from the proceeds of our 2020 event.

Timothy Ebert was tragically killed when he was hit by vehicle on I-95 while he was helping a woman who had been in a car crash. Ebert and his family resided in Richmond Hill at the time. He left behind his wife, Lindsay, daughter, Tinley (6) and sons, Bryce (12) and Brayden (9). Timothy Ebert worked as an air traffic controller at the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. Prior to his position there, he served in the United States Marine Corps for over 13 years. Tim was a devoted and loving father, husband, brother and friend. #HonorMark had the privilege of donating $1,500 to the Ebert family. #HonorMark was thrilled to have Lindsay and Tinley participate in the 2020 virtual 5k.

Because of the incredible support of our race participants, #HonorMark has also been able to give back to Mark's children. Chase and Emerson each have $5,429 in their college funds since #HonorMark started. Without the support of #HonorMark’s family and friends, the community, first responders and military, none of this would be possible. We want to give a huge thank you to everyone and we are excited for what the future years hold!

COVID DISCLAIMER: Truly, we appreciate you signing up and supporting our event/cause; you and your support means the world to us. With that being said, we want to inform you we're doing everything we can to make this race happen in person; however, if circumstances outside our control take away that ability, we will unfortunately have to conduct a virtual race this year. Once again, we truly appreciate your support and desire to come race with us. We want nothing more than to race with you.
