About This Activity

The thriving and talented 17-year-old, Emilio Perez, was an honor student, athlete, and friend to many. His creative side loved listening to music, playing music, baking, writing, and making movies. His perpetual whistle and smile were the essence of Emilio. To know him was to love him. He was wise beyond his years with a passion for life. With his senior year of high school just five months away, he had his sights on college and making his dreams a reality.

One day after his 17th birthday, on the evening of March 8th 2014, Emilio ran out of gas. He pulled over onto the shoulder, locked up his truck, put the emergency flashers on and began walking for gas when he was struck and killed by a hit-and-run motorist. A beautiful young man’s precious life was lost, much too soon.

To all of us that loved him, we vow to honor Emilio’s life and keep his memory alive by hosting the 2nd Annual “Whistle While you Walk/Run 5K for Emilio” at Willowbrook High School in Villa Park.
