Event Background:
Glen Perkins is a husband, father, and a relief pitcher for the Minnesota Twins. He married his college sweetheart- Alisha in 2005, and were later blessed with two little miracles- Addie & Lyla. Together they have tried to navigate this exciting and sometimes difficult baseball life.  Now you can follow their journey to the big leagues in the Fifteen's 5K. Alisha is an avid runner so when the Perkins wanted to find a way to give back- hosting a race seemed like the perfect fit.

The Fifteen's 5K race will benefit The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Glen and Alisha have two sets of close friends who have children with CF and have seen firsthand the challenges that they overcome every day to raise their beautiful children. Wanting to help in any way they could, this race will be a great way to raise money to find a cure for Aidan and Landry and the many other 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.
