On Sunday, October 26th we will be hosting the first annual MARCS Run to
benefit MARCS Foundation and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The 5K run/walk will take place on the main campus of the University of Rhode
Island. Check in begins at 9:30am and the race will kick off at 10am.
The Marcâ€™s Awareness and Research to Combat Suicide (MARCS) Foundation was
started to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention and research in
memory of Marc Abrams, who passed away in March 2014 at the age of 26.
Marc dedicated his life to helping others, from building schools in Ghana to his
work at a cancer research facility, he always put others first. His passions
included tennis, golf, cooking, and running. He was an avid New England Patriots
and Boston Red Sox fan.
This foundation will continue Marcâ€™s work to help
others and raise awareness for this debilitating disease.
