BOB BLAZIER RUN FOR THE ARTS

BOB BLAZIER RUN FOR THE ARTS

Sunday, May 1, 2022 @ 8 AM

 

Nearly 26 years ago, a 5K charity event was born to honor Bob Blazier’s unparalleled community accomplishments. At the time, Bob was working tirelessly with a handful of community champions to reinvigorate downtown Crystal Lake by renovating, reconstructing, and raising the curtain on a new performing arts center. Recognizing the important future role that Raue Center would play for the community, Bob asked that this new 5K race benefit the historic non-profit theater.

Twenty-five years later, the race continues to grow and build community, just like Bob. For over 60 years, “Mr. Crystal Lake” has truly defined what it means to be a community-minded citizen. His dedication and commitment to education, healthcare, and building business is something to be celebrated and admired. Come out and run for the arts for a chance to win a coveted BOBble Head Trophy!
