DJ's Story


AppealWebForm 01small

For Jerry Biag, brother of Marklund resident DJ, his most cherished childhood memories are of the weekends when DJ came home from Marklund. DJ, Jon and Jerry would camp out in their family room. Cuddled together with their sleeping bags, they watched their favorite cartoons while enjoying their parents’ homemade breakfasts.

Now that the brothers are grown, weekend campouts have become visits to see DJ at Marklund. DJ’s mother, Kate, has always involved her sons, and now her grandchildren, with Marklund as much as possible. Whether with DJ’s Dashers team at the Run, Walk, and Roll event or encouraging them to support Marklund on their own, Kate’s family motto is “We never forget Marklund.”

Today the Biag Family would like to encourage everyone in the Marklund community to show their support: the Biags have offered to match your gift – dollar for dollar – up to $10,000 if we receive it by December 31, 2017. Your year-end gift can make twice the impact.
