All proceeds benefit the LL12 Foundation, in memory of Logan Koontz. Logan was a sophomore at Tabb High School who was killed in a tragic car accident, in which he was a passenger, on October 26, 2019, leaving the homecoming dance. He was a talented student-athlete who loved life, sports, clubs, church, cruising, and his family. Logan was involved in sports from a very young age including swimming, lacrosse, baseball, and football. He won multiple awards and was on many championship and all-star teams. Logan played football, basketball, and baseball for Tabb Middle School and again was part of several championship teams. In high school, Logan made Varsity Football his freshman and sophomore year (where he wore #12), played JV Basketball his freshman year, and was a standout in Varsity Track as a freshman (region runner up in the 800m, all-state 800m, 4x800m, and 4x400m, part of the 2019 Tabb Boys Outdoor Track Region and State championship team, and posted a 2:00 in the 800 meters qualifying for the freshman division at Nationals where he finished ranked 12th). Logan was also involved in ROTC (he loved the American flag and his country, and desired to be a Navy Seal or a JAG Officer) and clubs such as Key Club, Unified Tigers, FBLA, Relay for Life, and Y-Street. The LL12 Foundation raises money in Logan's memory to provide scholarships for student athletes, help athletes with things such as camp fees and by providing equipment, support the ROTC program, and educate young people on the necessity of safe riding and driving precautions. Last year (in it's first year), the foundation awarded its first scholarship, provided the football team with new uniforms, and help place signage at the accident site to encourage safe driving.
The event raises money for a great cause and is in a tranquil, scenic, woodland setting. There will also be ample post-race refreshments, food, and drink (fruit, bagels, granola bars, water, etc.), raffle and door prizes, awesome race t-shirts, and an awards ceremony.
