Want to be a part of an event that involves exercise, a shirt, and a great meal for a low price that all goes to a good cause? Come out to honor students who died in the War on Terror and First Responders who died serving the St. Louis Metropolitan community. Started 4 years ago as the Peter Navarro BBQ, Lafayette looks to continue the legacy of honoring our Nation's very bravest! This year will be 5K & 1 Mile Walk/Run in addition to a barbecue.
Barbecue proceeds from previous years established scholarships in the name of Rockwood veterans and for financial support of Camp Hope and Backstoppers, Inc. This year’s inaugural Rockwood Hero 5K/1Mile Walk, will allocate proceeds to each high school in support of academic achievement programs. Chesterfield American Legion Post 556, Sons of the American Legion and Metro West/ Monarch Fire Districts are valued partners in this endeavor as they have loyally supported Rockwood’s tribute to veterans and First Responders.
Open to anyone, we wish to inspire the St. Louis community to embrace a "running" cause that witnesses the American Spirit of young men and women in the Armed Forces and dedicated First Responders.
