Two young brothers set up a lemonade stand to help raise money for Ballwin police officer Michael Flamion, who was shot in the line of duty.

Patrick Mayer, 10, and his brother Tyler are behind the lemonade stand and said they exceeded their goal. Over a two-day period, the two sold cups of lemonade for 50 cents. They were hoping to raise $100, but ended up collecting way beyond that number.

In total, the brothers raised $1,200. On July 21, they delivered the money to the Ballwin Police Department.

“This would be all for you, hope you get better and have a nice day,” the brothers said as a message to Officer Flamion.

It was recently announced that Flamion is paralyzed and will require intensive care.

The brothers’ efforts is just one of the many ways in which people in Ballwin are rallying to help Flamion.

Many restaurants in and around Ballwin donated portions of their sales on July 18 to help with Flamion’s medical bills.

The Ballwin Athletic Association will soon honor Flamion at its annual All Star event.
