Chicagoland Custom Closets is proud to support the annual Bob Perkaus 5k. This race takes place in the Sauganash Community and both honors Bob’s life and benefits a child at Loyola Academy who has lost a parent through a scholarship fund.
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. 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.
