Let’s salute the veterans who bravely serve our country! We invite you to participate in the all-new Veterans Day 5K event in downtown St. Louis on November 5, 2016. Run or walk in honor of the veterans in your life as well as St. Patrick Center’s veteran clients. The timed 5K and untimed one-mile run/walk will be held downtown, in conjunction with the annual St. Louis Regional Veterans Day Observance Ceremony and Parade. There will also be a kid's dash following completion of the 5K and 1M events, with the arch in the back drop for perfect photo opportunities for parents and grandparents! Participants will receive a moisture-wicking long-sleeve race shirt. Plus, there will be plenty of refreshments (complimentary adult beverage for each registrant of age) and activities for all ages. The 5K race awards ceremony will be on the same stage as the Veteran's Day ceremony by the city, which precludes the parade in the same location! This family-friendly morning is a great way to commemorate vets who are serving, and have served the USA. All Veterans Day 5K proceeds will go to St. Patrick Center, which annually assists 1,100 veterans who are homeless or at risk.
