The Jim Schoemehl 5k Run was created in 2001 by a DECA student when a marketing teacher from Webster Groves High Schools’ husband, Jim Schoemehl, was diagnosed with ALS in September 2001. In addition to being a loving husband, he was a caring father and had a beautiful two year old daughter. At the time, our school knew nothing about the horrible effects that ALS had on the patient and their family and friends. Unfortunately, Jim lost his battle with ALS, but his legacy lives on in the annual run. Each year the race has gradually grown to raise more money and awareness for ALS. The run has been integrated into a community event with many families, friends, and even pets participating. The race has persevered through harsh thunderstorms and very hot temperatures. Each year is different from the last because a new group of students organize the run; however we always set the bar higher with each new class. We hope that this year the race continues to grow to exemplary new heights and we know it will be a great success. Help us celebrate becoming “One Step Closer” to finding the cure for ALS and support the Willcut family as they face the struggles that come with an ALS diagnosis.
