Keeping in line with the spirit of Mark, his love of the game, his love of friends, and his love of activity, the MAK Fund has hosted events designed to engage the spirit of children and to provide for children. The renewal of funds through fundraising efforts is critical to the perpetuity of our mission and vision.
