Fifteen’s 5K race was started by Glen and Alisha Perkins as a way to give back to the community. Glen Perkins is a husband, father and proudly wears number 15 as a relief pitcher for the Minnesota Twins. The Fifteen’s 5K combines Alisha’s passion for running with Glen’s hometown baseball career with the Minnesota Gophers and now the Twins. The 5K race begins near the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and ends at Target Field.

This year’s race will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation. Glen and Alisha have two family friends who have children with CF and have seen first hand the challenges they are overcoming to raise their children and work for a cure. The Perkins have been active in supporting CF Foundation events. This race is one more way to support finding a cure for Aidan and Landry and the many other adults and children who are living with CF.

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
