The sixth annual LoganFest is May 10-12 in Puyallup and is expanding this year to include a Mother’s Day morning 5-kilometer fun run and walk.

Proceeds from LoganFest, which includes a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, go to the families of Carson Elementary third-grader Matthew Halliday-Smith and Ballou Junior High ninth grader Jacoby Miles.

Halliday-Smith is battling neuroblastoma, a form of cancer, and Miles was paralyzed in a gymnastics accident last year.

The race entry is $15 and includes a shirt if you register by Tuesday. The basketball tournament requires a minimum donation of $60 per team for students and $100 for adults. The elementary school tournament is May 10. The junior high and adult tournaments are May 11-12. Only teams who register by Tuesday will be assured of receiving a shirt.

The race and all games are Kalles Junior High, 501 7th Ave. S.E., Puyallup.

Loganfest started in 2008 to raise money for Logan Lewis, who was also battling neoroblastoma. He is now a fifth grader. The event has raised $50,000 since its inception, with funds going to a different family each year.
