On September 11, 2001 we tragically lost a son, brother, husband and good friend, Mark  Steven Jardim.  Mark touched the lives of many, many people and made hundreds of friends that miss him dearly.  We felt that Mark would like nothing better than to see his friends and family get together to share stories and reconnect year after year.  

Therefore, we invite you to join us in a celebration of his life and his love of running at the Annual Mark Jardim Memorial Jog (MJMJ) in Mark's hometown of Cheshire, CT.   The event will include a 5K run /jog/walk around Cheshire Park's scenic cross country course, a Fun Run for the kids, and a post jog barbecue at the Cheshire Park pavilion.   Pets are welcome!

9/11 Memorial NYC
Bench dedication in Central Park, NYC 
The bench is located just to the north of the E 90th St. entrance, on the east side of East Park Drive.
During his years living in NYC, Mark spent many beautiful Sunday afternoons in Central Park running the 6.1 mile Park Drive loop. 
Sadly all good things must come to an end. After 13 truly heartwarming runnings of the Mark Jardim Memorial Jog, we have decided that this year will be the last MJMJ. Please join us on Sunday, October 11, 2015 for the 14th MJMJ at Cheshire Park. We look forward to gathering with friends and family to once again celebrate the life and legacy of Mark, and to enjoy each others company. Thank you so much to everyone that has run, volunteered, cheered, sponsored and supported us over the years, and for allowing us to gather and give back to the Cheshire community in honor of Mark. See you in October!
