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. 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. 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.
