Today, we’re shutting the doors and heading down to City Island, Harrisburg, for the Logan’s Run & Walk. Look for the bright orange shirts hanging out by the gazebo or swing by the CrossFit 717 booth where our team will be handing out information for the Alex for Autism WOD. It’s still not too late to donate either. Visit Tara’s page, give a couple bucks towards a great cause, and meet us for the 5k run (or walk) at 10am!
Logan’s Run & Walk for Autism will be Saturday, April 6, 2013 at City Island in Harrisburg, PA. The 5K Run will begin at 10:00 a.m. (sign-in and walk-on registration at 9:00 a.m.). The autism awareness Family Fun Walk begins at 12:00 noon (sign-in and walk-on registration at 11:00 a.m.). * PARKING is FREE on City Island. * There will be cash awards for the overall male and female winners of Logan’s Run 5K : $125-First Place, $100 – Second Place; $75.00 –Third Place. Event medals for the male/female winner in each age group. Age Groups are: 0-18, 19-25, 26-30, 31-35, 36-40, 41-45, 46-50, 51-55, 56-60, 60-65, and 66+. * Special recognition will also go to the individual and team who raise the most funds for the event. * Every dollar raised by Logan’s Run and Walk for Autism, will go directly to help children, teens, adults and seniors living with autism in Central PA, as well as their families and those who support them. Funds raised provide educational, social and recreational opportunities for the local autism community. * The events of April 6th will include prizes, refreshments, entertainment for children and autism related vendors and exhibitors. * Logan’s Run – 5K is named in memory of Logan Mitcheltree, a young boy with autism from South Williamsport who, in December of 2004, died tragically after he became lost on a wooded mountainside. While there is progress being made in our understanding of autism, Logan’s story is a sobering reminder that autism can bring an array of serious concerns and challenges for families, beginning with the child’s vulnerability and safety.
