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.

The mission of the Autism Society Greater Harrisburg Area is to create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. They promote opportunities for individuals with Autism to participate in the same valued life experience as other citizens do
