Event Name: 2016 Newport Marathon


On August 18, 2013, Markian Paslawsky was killed during the battle in Ilovaysk, outside the rebel-held city of Donetsk while fighting with the Donbas Battalion against rebel forces supported by Russia. Markian was born in New York City to parents from Ukraine, and was raised in a tight- knit Ukrainian community in Newark, New Jersey. He attended and graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. In 1992, Markian moved to Ukraine. He was on the Maidan in 2013 and later joined the Donbas Battalion. His journey ended in Donetsk. However, The Markian Paslawsky Fund continues his fight to help Ukraine and its people. Together with the Kyiv-based International Alliance for Fraternal Assistance(IAFA) and the Ukrainian National Foundation (UNF), The Markian Paslawsky Fund has been working to develop a modern rehabilitation space at the Lviv State Enterprise for Prosthetics and Mobility. This is one of very few facilities in Ukraine manufacturing prosthetic limbs and fitting war victims at a time when the need for such services is critical. Now the Lviv facility will also be able to provide up-to-date comprehensive physical therapy and life skills training.
