Powerful message at Run


The 2nd Annual Logan’s Run saw a large turnout on Saturday, Oct. 24, for the race held in attempt to raise money towards STOMP Addiction’s educational services and to help raise money to send current addicts to residential treatment facilities. The race started at 10 a.m. and a powerful opening ceremony was held before. The ceremony included a poem read by Debbie Reynolds, founder of STOMP Addiction, who lost her son Logan Apking to a drug overdose. It also included a testimonial from a Preble County man, Ty Weinstiger, whom STOMP Addiction helped get to a treatment facility, where he currently is battling for his sobriety. Fighting back tears, he thanked Debbie and her sister Kim for his new life, which he said started on June 12. “Logan’s death is a tragedy, but the absence of meaning is what makes a tragedy a tragedy,” Weinstiger said. “And in my case, I’m not letting Logan’s death be a tragedy. Because of Logan’s tragedy, I’ve got my life back, my parents got a son back and my brothers and sisters got their brother back.” The opening ceremony concluded with the release of balloons into the air with the name of loved ones lost to drug addiction.
