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.

Last year when we couldn’t gather in person, we decided to create a virtual memorial banner and posted it to our Walk to Defeat ALS Facebook page. As we are once again walking in the way that makes the most sense for you this year, we’ve created another virtual banner for 2021, and wanted to share it with you here as well.
