This heart in honor of Logan Neale who died in a truck crash of unknown cause and suffered from depression and an eating disorder. This year’s Bill Carfrey Turkey Trot on November 19, 2016 in the Woodlake neighborhood in Midlothian, VA is in his honor of Logan’s memory and his love of running. Proceeds go to Beacon Tree Foundation, advocates for youth mental health.

Logan kept his running shoes as trophies and he bought his shoes at Lucky Road in Midlothian. His grieving mom made this heart and sent it to me.
