Bob Blazier Run For The Arts

Twenty two years ago, Mike Splitt stood up at a chamber of commerce dinner to announce that the chamber wanted to organize a 5K event 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. Twenty One years later, the event continues to grow and build community, just like Bob. For over 50 years, Bob 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. More info here.
