YOU ran with LOGAN at Notre Dame
A big thank you to all the runners, walkers, volunteers, sponsors and spectators who made the 13th annual LOGAN’s Run a huge success. We couldn’t do it without you!
Early totals show we had close to 1,400 registered participants combined for the 1-mile Fun Walk, 5k and 10k runs. Add to that 436 volunteers, plus a crowd of spectators cheering for friends and family members, and LOGAN’s Run drew more than 2,000 people to the University of Notre Dame campus on a hot summer morning.
Between sponsors and participants, the event raised about $85,000 for LOGAN services to children and adults living with the challenges of intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Jordan Annis, 21, of Mishawaka, won the men’s division of the 10k race with a time of 32:35.68. Laura Gillette, 31, of Goshen, won the women’s 10K with a time of 39:28:09.
In the 5K race, Andy Herbert, 21, of South Bend, won the men’s division with a time of 16:33.30, and Sarah Ingle, 38, of South Bend, won the women’s with a time of 21:50.06.
First-, second- and third-place finishers in each age division also received recognition and prizes.

Her coverage, 30 miles raises $26k for LOGAN Center featured live interviews with Jamie McGraw and Jill Langford, co-race directors; Kristin Wier, clinical director for the LOGAN Autism Learning Center — Southwest Michigan; and Dr. Joshua Diehl, Chief Strategy Officer for Autism Services
