Peace Fest 5KBetter Family Life, Inc. invites the greater St. Louis community to join with us, Saturday, September 16, 2017, as we kick off this year’s PeaceFest with a 5K Run/Family Fun Walk – On Pace for Peace at Harris-Stowe State University.

This is an opportunity to show support for a safe, peaceful, and united community, by participating in either the competitive 5K or 1M fun run/walk. We extend a special invitation to those who have been victims of crime, or who have lost a loved one to violence.

PeaceFest has become one of the most anticipated summer events in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. Awards ceremony immediately follows race. PeaceFest kicks off with a Softball game, "Bases, Beats and Badges", an inaugural battle between the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and iHeart Radio vs. the St. Louis County Police and Radio One. It’s going to be EPIC! PeaceFest also includes a Children’s Play Zone, food, live music on the main stage and more than 50 Peace Fest vendors and merchants.

All Peace Fest events, and “On Pace for Peace”, support the Neighborhood Alliance “Stop the Violence” Campaign. Please come out and represent your company, organization, church, family and yourself.
