The 2018 race will be held Saturday, September 8th.

Gabe always idolized his father, Wilson Middle School cross country coach Matt Perkins. So a 5k road race is the perfect fundraiser to honor the Perkins family legacy.

Our race traditionally begins at Gabe's elementary school, Jane Addams, and weaves through the neighborhood surrounding, bringing you close to both his grandparents' home and his grave site. Our postrace party includes snacks, drinks, awards, and has been visited in the past by some out-of-this-world guests!

Our thanks to the local members of the 501st Legion, a group of Star Wars enthusiasts who made an appearance at our post race party in 2017. Gabe was a huge Star Wars fan, and your presence was truly a gift!
