ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - First responders who gave their lives in the line of duty are being remembered this weekend at Art Hill near the St. Louis Art Museum.

The names of the fallen officers will be read during a 10am ceremony on Sunday (pushed back from Saturday, due to rain) on Art Hill. One-thousand large Origami cranes are on display through Sunday evening.

The founder of Ornaments for Officers, Rick Ruderer, says the project is a fundraiser for the Backstoppers charity, “They can be adopted at the end of the day or via our website, and be picked up next week in Kirkwood for $10 apiece. If all the cranes find homes, we’ll raise $10,000 for Backstoppers.”

To reserve a crane, go to www.stlcraneproject.com .
