Second Wind of St. Louis - Lung Walk


The Second Wind of St. Louis Lung Walk is this Saturday!
My family has been participating for the past two years (last year's walk + Craig's Clan info can be found here)
We learned of the Second Wind group when my dad received his lung transplant on Jan 13th, 2014. He was transplant   # 1313 for Barnes Jewish Hospital (they just celebrated 1500 transplants!!!). This year is their 13th annual walk (there's that number 13 again). This year we will be participating as virtual walkers, but will be back in the flesh next year. If you are free this Saturday and local to the St. Louis area, you should head to Forest Park and join in on this cause!

Our Mission

The Second Wind Lung Transplant Association of St. Louis is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of life for lung transplant recipients, lung surgery candidates, people with related pulmonary concerns and their families by providing support, advocacy, education, information and guidance through a spirit of service.
