A Letter to Potential Sponsors:

Sponsorship opportunities are available with the 18th annual Webster Groves High School Jim Schoemehl Run for ALS. Started in 2001 by Webster Groves High School’s marketing program, the run began as an effort to raise money for the husband of former Webster Groves marketing teacher, Alicia Schoemehl. Since then, the WGHS marketing program has continued the race in his name and raised over $300,000 for the ALS Association and 16 different families affected by ALS.

We understand that you may have a desire to give back to the local community, and we would greatly appreciate your help. With the support of your organization, or individual contribution, we hope to put on another successful run to raise money for a local family, the Harts, affected by ALS. The race will take place the morning of May 4, 2019. Based on last year’s number of participants, we are predicting to have close to 500 runners. The event will also feature an awards ceremony, DJ, hospitality center, and activities for children. We are excited for this event and hope that you choose to be a part of the 2019 Jim Schoemehl Run.

If you, or your organization, decides to sponsor the event, please contact our sponsorship team about sponsorship levels and any questions you may have. Please let us know if you’d like to schedule a meeting to discuss any further questions. I’ve attached details of the various sponsorship levels below.
