Veterans Day 5K Run/Walk 2020


We’re excited to announce that the 5th Annual Veterans Day 5K Run/Walk presented by Keeley Companies will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at Soldiers Memorial in Downtown St. Louis.

The Veterans Day 5K Run/Walk, presented by Keeley Companies, includes a timed 5K, one-mile run/walk, FREE kids’ dash and many fun-filled activities. This is a family-friendly event to honor our nation’s heroes and raise awareness for veteran homelessness. Last year, St. Patrick Center helped more than 800 veterans (24% of our client population) and their families who were experiencing homelessness. In 2019, we connected 81 veterans with jobs, placed 186 veterans and their families in permanent housing and helped increase the income of 94 veterans through employment and
benefits services.

5K and one-mile participant cost: $35*, $40 beginning on November 1
Virtual participant cost: $40 – Walk or run your own route whenever you want. Race packet will be mailed after November 7.
