Second Wind’s Lung Walk and 5K Race is very important to so many people.

2017-second-wind-lung-walk_walking_300Second Wind does so much for lung transplant recipients. We help them and their families so they can heal and live fuller lives. Proceeds from the Lung Walk benefit the Second Wind Assistance fund which provides limited financial assistance for lung transplant patients to help with emergency needs, lodging or many of the other associated costs in the transplant process.

Here’s what you can do:
The Lung Walk is our annual major funding source to allow us to do the crucial work we do on a daily basis. You can create a team, become a sponsor, volunteer at the event or just participate. In short, we need your help!

Kevin Steincross to MC this year’s Lung Walk

Second Wind is delighted to have Kevin Steincross as our Master of Ceremonies for our 14th annual Lung Walk. For 20 years Kevin has been waking up St. Louis with a smile. He began co-anchoring Fox 2 News in the Morning in 1996, helping grow it into the #1 rated newscast in St. Louis. He is grateful to St. Louisans for their loyalty and humbled that he gets to be a part of their morning very weekday.

Kevin is also a rabid movie fan who screens movies and interviews stars … and can’t believe he gets paid for it! Some favorites: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and anyone from the UK. He says the Brits give the best interviews. Must be something in the scones.

Kevin was born in Alabama, grew up in Missouri, earned a Bachelor’s Degree at Baylor University in Texas, and a Master’s Degree from Columbia University in New York.

He is thrilled to be a part of the Lung Walk and is happy to support Second Wind Lung Transplant Association and all the good work it does for so many families.

This Year’s 5K Race will be Chip Timed!

This means that all results will automatically be captured digitally as runners cross the finish line. Results will immediately be posted on a 47″ flat screen at the event. Results will also be texted to preregistered participants. All results will be posted online.

We are very excited to have this technology in place for our runners. It means we can provide a better race for all involved.
