 6th Annual

Lt. Mark H. Dooley 5K Race
Saturday., September 20,. 2014

-Wilmington, Vermont -

  In honor of Lt. Mark Dooley
In memory of all our fallen heroes...

Please join us for the 6th Annual Lt. Mark H. Dooley 5K Race in Wilmington, VT
 - Saturday, September 20, 2014 - 


A great cause, great people, live music,
hot breakfast, event t-shirts, custom medals and trophies!

Mark Dooley was a graduate of Norwich (Military) University in Vermont.  He began a career in law enforcement as a Deputy Sheriff for the Windham County Sheriff's Department and later worked as a police officer for the Town of Wilmington, Vermont.  

Mark also served his country as a First Lieutenant with the Vermont Army National Guard.   One of Mark's many accomplishments was his completion of the Army's rigorous Ranger School.

LT Mark Dooley was killed in action while proudly serving his country in Iraq on September 19, 2005.  He will be forever missed.  

Please help us keep the memory strong and support this event!  If you don't wish to walk or run the 5K race, you can still join us on race day and show your support.

Before he was deployed to Iraq, Mark gave his parents a letter, in the event he didn't come home...please take the time to read this letter.  It is a true reflection of the caliber of person Mark Dooley was.

Dad, Mom and Charlie;
It is immensely hard to put into words raw emotion or put down on one piece of paper what you want people to remember you by. However, if you're reading this then I am not able to convey either in person...
