Bob Blazier Run for the Arts

May 2 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am




Come join Raue Center for The Most Epic Run in Theatrical History!

A long time ago in a Chamber meeting far, far away, a 5K event was born in honor of Bob Blazier’s unparalleled community accomplishments. Bob was to name a charity of his choice and he chose Raue Center For The Arts!

Lace-up those shoes and get ready to run The Most Epic Run in Theatrical History!  This year, Raue Center’s 24th annual Bob Blazier Run for the Arts encourages participants to come as their favorite characters from movies, tv, books, or music!

Twenty-four years later, the event continues to grow and build community, just like Bob. For over 50 years, Bob Blazier 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
