Members of Team JLL, along with more than 1,000 participants, took part in the “Master the Met” race, a vertical challenge to the top of the Metropolitan Square Building, the tallest building in St. Louis. JLL St. Louis, which manages the building and also is headquartered at the Met, has hosted the event since its inception in 2008. The American Lung Association (ALA) sponsors the race as part of its national “Fight for Air Climb” campaign.
Team JLL consisted of Henry Voges, Missy Davis, Christina Davis, Tracy Rogier, and Jeremy Crockett together with additional friends and family. The team climbed 40 Floors/80 Flights/856 stairs to the top and raised more than $2,000 to benefit the ALA’s local programs and services. Christina Davis, Property Administrator for JLL, said, “It’s definitely a challenging race, but it’s certainly worth the effort to help raise awareness and money for a good cause. We’re glad that our involvement helps make a difference in our community.”
The ALA ‘s goal for this year’s “Fight for Air Climb” is $390,000, of which over $321,000 has been raised to date.
