Jacob Logan Run
Published: Mon, Dec 15, 2014, 02:30PM CST

HI. WE ARE THE LOGANS.

In October 2012, we got the call that no parent ever wants to get. We learned that our son, Jacob, had been in a tragic accident and wouldn’t be coming home to us. That day our hearts shattered into a million pieces. We began the long grief journey with no idea how to pick up the pieces.

FROM COPPELL TO AFRICA.

Losing Jacob showed us how important it is to make the most of our time here. So nine months after Jacob went Home, we left home. We headed to Zambia. Our goal was simple; we wanted to honor Jacob by loving on orphans. We fell in love with those amazing kids. Every time they showed us joy, they gave us a little piece of our broken hearts back. We thought we were being called to love on orphans. Little did we know we were being called for orphans to love on us. It was then we decided to build a house.

JOIN US. SATURDAY, 12.20.14
The Jacob Logan 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run will take place on Saturday, December 20, 2014 — rain or shine — at Andy Brown Park East in Coppell, Texas. 1 Mile Fun Run starts at 9:00am, and the 5k Run/Walk at 9:30am.

RUN PROCEEDS BENEFIT:

Austin Schoola Fundraiser
Published: Mon, Dec 8, 2014, 06:32PM CST

A clean closet and money for your School!

Austin Elementary is participating in a Schoola Clothing Drive. Simply by cleaning your closets, you can raise much-needed funds for our school!

It’s easy as 1-2-3:

Stuff a bag with high-quality, well cared-for clothes 1 for toddlers, kids and women. The things you’d feel best about giving a friend will raise the most. Drop off bags in during morning drop off or in the front office from Dec. 8th until Dec. 19th.

Spread the word to your friends and family through our very own Schoola page. They can also donate clothes to benefit our school!

Schoola will spiff and sell our clothes on their online shop (www.schoola.com). For every $5 customers spend, they’ll send $2 back to Austin Elementary! How good is that?!

Questions? Contact Kayna Duke or calling 817.721.3401
