The fight for air climb succeeds another rewarding year for Scale The STRAT at The STRAT, Hotel, Casino and Skypod. The American Lung Association continues their mission to create a world free of lung disease.
In the U.S. Lung cancer is the leading killer amongst men and women according to Lung.org. We must commit to spreading awareness to our neighbors while raising funds for research and medicines.
The Scale The STRAT event has taken place for over a decade bringing in thousands of Las Vegans and out-of-towners alike.
At X107.5, we committed to raising funds and asking our dedicated listeners, like you, to join #TeamX. We are proud to say that you heard us and even during trying times helped raise $55. Our company, Beasley Media Group Las Vegas raised $1,789 earning us the sixth spot on American Lung Association’s Top Ten Companies list.
Our morning show producer, Jordan volunteered to Scale The STRAT for the very first time. To give those perspective on what this means… The Stratosphere is 1,455 steps which in retrospect is 108 stories and 854 feet. We are so proud of him as he gave it his all in completing the monstrous climb.
Jordan’s piece of advice would be, “don’t wait until the last day to get into shape.” He also mentioned that when you are scaling to “find your pace and don’t rush.”
Shout Out to Aimee who was with us in spirit. She scaled 1,455 steps in our office building due to another event she was scheduled for. Her dedication shows just how much Lung cancer awareness means to #TeamVGS.
The fastest time was recorded at 06:46 by participant, Wai Ching Soh. He scaled the exact same time as he did the year prior.
No matter how fast you Scale The STRAT, our fight to end Lung cancer will continue.
