Sat 04/29/2017 Logan's Run 5K Silver Spring, MD (Westover Elementary School) 8:45 a.m. The day's events include a Walk and Family Fun Run. See website for details. The source of inspiration for this run is Logan, a former Jamon student, who was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis in Spring 2014 at the age of 3. At that time, Logan lost the ability to walk and was only given a 33% chance to walk again. By Fall 2014, Logan took her first steps and quickly progressed to running! Watching Logan’s courage and determination has been a blessing and a lesson for us all. Our goals for this run are to inspire others through life’s hurdles and to foster an awareness of this rare disease, Transverse Myelitis. Proceeds will go towards Logan's medical expenses and the Jamon Montessori Day School S.T.E.M program.
