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.
