March, 2015 – The 2015 Flight for Air climb was held March 28, 2015 in St. Louis, Missouri. Luke A. Baumstark participated for his sixth year climbing the 40 flights of stairs at the Metropolitan Square building. The annual event raises money for the American Lung Association and raises awareness about lung disease.
Luke was the 9th highest fundraiser out of over 1,000 climbers and came in at the top third of his age group on his climb time this year. Luke was also on the committee for the event and was a team captain for the fifth year. The event raised almost $250,000 for the American Lung Association’s gulf-plains region. Way to go, Luke!
