Whether majoring in exercise science, starting his Scotts career working in the fitness center or leading associates in a stretching session prior to a volunteer event, ScottsMiracle-Gro associate Logan prioritizes wellness and a healthy lifestyle in all he does. His approach extends to his involvement as a coach for the American Heart Association (AHA) Central Ohio Heart Walk. For the second year running, Logan has put together a golf scramble to raise money for the walk.
Logan’s passion for advocating for heart health runs deep. His dad, uncle and grandfather all had to have multiple bypass heart surgery before the age of 55. “I’ve seen what heart disease can do,” Logan explained. “So from work life to home, I’ve made it a priority to think about my health for my family and friends and to create a healthy, safe environment within the Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) team.”
Golfing for good
To raise additional money for the Heart Walk last year, Logan started a golf scramble and helped raise more than $2,500 in its first year. This year Logan is hoping to get even more groups involved in the scramble. Not only does the EHS team generate support for the Heart Walk, they’re also staying active and bonding as they do it.
Walk this way
Logan’s efforts on the golf course and to inspire a healthy lifestyle all lead to the annual Heart Walk. With both a 1-mile and 3-mile course, the walk presents an incredible opportunity to rally around a cause with co-workers, friends and community members. This year’s Central Ohio edition takes place on August 19. For those outside of the Columbus area, you can simply enter your zip code on the AHA website to find a walk near you. An added bonus: the Heart Walk does not have a registration fee, so participants can focus on fundraising.
With his emphasis on wellness in all aspects of his life, Logan exemplifies the spirit of LiveTotal Health, the health and wellness benefits program at ScottsMiracle-Gro. He shares his personal story to show the importance of taking care of ourselves, especially our heart health. Thank you to Logan for sharing his story and hopefully inspiring us to help. Like Logan says, “Even a small change of effort can make a big difference.”
