Logan Hamilton invited to Down Under Sports meet
Logan Hamilton, a junior at Manila High School, has been invited to run in a track and field meet in Australia for the 2017 Down Under Sports event.
Logan is excited to be invited and he will be raising money to help with his trip expenses for the nine day trip. The total cost is $4,699.
It is a by invitation only meet and Logan feels honored to be included.
A scout for the Down Under event saw Logan during one of his high school track meets and he was included in the 2017 Arkansas All-State Track and Field Team invitations.
Logan runs the 200 meter, 100 meter, triple jump, 4x400 and 4x100.
He is the son of Garrett and April Hamilton of Manila.
A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help Logan in his fund raising. The link is www.gofundme.com/N8-trip-to-australia-for-track-field.
He will be holding other fund raisers and will appreciate any help from individuals or businesses who would like to help sponsor the young athlete.
The Down Under event will be held in July and Logan plans to work hard to earn and raise the money for the trip.
