Bob Perkaus 5K on October 6, 2013

History:

Bob Perkaus III, for whom the race is named, was a life-long Sauganash resident until his sudden death in 2005. For two decades he was an active member of the Sauganash Community Association and he spent several years as its president. Dedicated to family and community, his passion was running. He jogged the streets of the Sauganash neighborhood daily, while training for marathons in Boston, Chicago and L.A. Thus, it is fitting that this Sauganash Community’s annual fall event – the Sauganash Community Association Bob Perkaus 5K Memorial – travels these same streets. This event honors Bob’s life and legacy.  Proceeds from the event will go to a scholarship fund at Loyola Academy in memory of Bob Perkaus III, and to support the Sauganash Community.
