About This Activity

The Honoring The Legacy Memorial Day 5K Run/Walk seeks to honor the many who have given their lives in defense of our country.

The run helps support Trail Life and American Heritage Girl Troops IL-0078 in the Belleville area in their efforts to promote patriotism, good citizenship, and a love for the military through the programs offered. 

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.

The course  begins and ends at Laderman Park in Belleville, Illinois and traverses the Memorial Day Parade route in both directions.
