The Honoring The Legacy Memorial Day Run begins and ends at Laderman Park in Belleville, Illinois and traverses the Memorial Day Parade route in both directions.
The run helps support Trail Life USA and American Heritage Girl Troops IL-0078 in the Belleville area. Additionally a portion of the proceeds will be given to a combat-wounded veterans group in the St Louis area. These organizations all seek to honor the military and their commitment to our great nation.
