Webster Groves High School is proud to announce the 15th annual Jim Schoemehl 5K Run/Walk for ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Since the beginning of the event, Webster Groves High School has raised over $220,000 for local families affected by ALS, the ALS Association, MDA and the Jack Orchard Foundation.

 This event is organized entirely by Webster Groves High School students who are committed to leading the community and the city in raising awareness for ALS.


The student board of directors is asking for support from local businesses through donations of various supplies and gifts needed to host another successful event. Donations will be used to help decrease the costs of the run and increase the contributions given to our selected charities. Below are suggestions of helpful ways to contribute:


Ø  Sponsor the event

Ø  Provide gifts to be used as door prizes

Ø  Make a tax-deductable donation to the charitable event (see attached sheet for levels of donation)

Ø  Sponsor a racing team made up of employees from your company

Ø  Donate items that are needed (contact us for details)


The department chairs are determined to reach our goal of $20,000 and any donations your business could provide would be greatly appreciated. A sponsorship will provide your company with the opportunity to be featured on our website, t-shirts, and other promotional activities leading up to the event and continuing throughout the year.


All donations and sponsorship agreements may be sent directly to The Jim Schoemehl 5K Run Benefit to the attention of our advisor, Mrs. Kara Siebe or Mitchell Paulson. Should you have any questions, please contact Kara Siebe at (314) 918-4160 or Mitchell Paulson at (314) 961-4369.


We warmly welcome your reply and invite you to participate in our run/walk on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 8 AM.
