1000 Origami Cranes or Senbazuru has many meanings. For the STL Crane project they represent a memorial to those who have fallen protecting our community, a pledge to their families and a wish for peace.

We hope that this installation reminds us of the sacrifices of our first responders and their families.

Legend has it that folding 1000 cranes will cause a wish to come true. Our wish is simple, that our first responders remain safe and that St. Louis never forgets those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

It is believed that having a crane will bring luck and prosperity. For that reason these special cranes will be available for adoption at the end of the installation for a $10.00 donation with all proceeds going to The BackStoppers.

Information on how to adopt a crane, volunteer to help fold cranes and the schedule for the installation are on this website.
