Mark Salkowski was a loving and dedicated father, husband, brother and friend. In April of 2015 Mark was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. After months of fighting this deadly disease he passed away in December of 2015. Throughout his life Mark loved fitness and exercise. One of his favorite forms of exercise included running many 5K runs over the years. Join us in honoring Mark and helping in the fight against Glioblastoma. All proceeds from this event will be donated in Mark’s name to The Mussela Foundation for Brain Tumor Research & Information, Inc.
