In Memoriam: Remembering Those We’ve Lost to ALS

We are so excited to be back IN PERSON for the St. Louis Walk to Defeat ALS this Saturday (June 25, 2022) in Forest Park. It has been three long years since we have been able to gather together as a community for the St. Louis Walk, and the chance to see so many old and new friends in one place has us all counting down the hours.

Among the most important parts of a Walk to Defeat ALS day is the memorial banner, which lists the names of each person our Chapter served who we have lost to ALS, and anyone who is being walked in memory of. For the last two years when we couldn’t gather in person, we created a virtual memorial banner and posted it to our Walk to Defeat ALS Facebook page. Even though we will be back in Forest Park this year, we’ve updated the virtual banner to create a lasting memorial to those we have lost to ALS that the ALS Association St. Louis Regional Chapter served during their fight. We wanted to share it with you here as well.

Once again this Saturday, we walk in honor of those living with ALS and in memory of all we have lost. We hope you’ll join us.

  1. The list gets longer each year. Blessings to all who have lost someone to this disease, prayers to those who currently live with ALS, and strength to this community of people who continue to work towards finding a cure.
