August 20, 1966 - April 15, 2022
Mark Dalsing served the City of Dubuque as both a police officer and Chief of Police before his retirement in September 2021. From there he joined the Housing Department at Catholic Charities until his unexpected death in April 2022.
Mark will always be known for being the light in the room, the jokester, a shoulder to lean on and the best husband, father, family member and friend anybody could ask for. Outside of work, Mark loved participating in 5K racing events around the Dubuque Area. Although, self-admittedly, he wasn't the fastest runner, he ran for joy. Crossing the finish line at each race was the most important part to him, regardless of what the clock said.
Join us in honoring Mark and celebrating his life with a 5k (3-mile) run/walk event. This will be held at the Heritage Trail in Dubuque, IA on May 13th, 2023 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM.
Proceeds for this race will be donated to the Avery Foundation, helping Dubuque families through the trying times of a cancer diagnosis.
