Bob Perkaus Memorial 5K Run

August 27, 2012

Alderman Margaret Laurino, along with the Sauganash Community Association
and the Sauganash Chamber of Commerce, are proud to announce the Bob Perkaus
Memorial 5K on Sunday, October 21st, at 9:00am at Sauganash Park located
at 5861 N. Kostner (registration begins at 8:00am). A portion of the proceeds
from this event will go to a scholarship fund set up in Bob's name at Loyola
Academy for a student who has lost a parent.

Until Bob's untimely death in 2005, his entire life was lived in
and shaped by Chicago and the Sauganash Community. Bob worked hard to make
Sauganash a better place to live. For two decades he was an active member of
the Sauganash Community Association, serving as its president for a few years
in the 1990s. Bob also had a passion for running - completing marathons in
Boston, Chicago and L.A. Every day he jogged the streets of Sauganash. Thus it
is fitting that the Sauganash Community's annual fall event - the Bob Perkaus
Memorial Run/Walk - travels these same streets. This event honors Bob's life
and legacy.
