The Lower Providence Township Board of Supervisors issued a proclamation declaring August 4, 2018 “Marc Small Day” to honor the service, sacrifice and legacy of Staff Sgt. Marc Small, a Lower Providence Township resident who was killed in action in Afghanistan. The date marks the tenth and final “On Your Marc” 5K run/walk event. The event has been held in Marc’s memory every year since his passing and this year falls on Marc’s birthday, Aug. 4.
Since 2009, the event has raised over $275,000 for Small Steps in Speech, a foundation that helps children with the “small steps” needed to improve their speech and communication. Visit lptrec.com to sign up for this special community event.
Mary and Peter MacFarland, mother and stepfather of Staff Sgt. Marc Small, accept the “Marc Small Day” proclamation from Lower Providence Township Board of Supervisors Chairman Patrick Duffy and Supervisor Colleen Eckman.
