Kevin Newton

Kevin became a part of the Planning Committee for the ‘Peak the Plaza’ Fight for Air Climb in Providence and dove head first into his responsibilities. He never missed a meeting, offering up ideas and volunteering for multiple tasks at a time. On event day, Kevin coordinated all 100 volunteers, a responsibility that he asked for. As a CVS employee, he approached the company’s HR department about getting involved in the Fight for Air Climb. His perseverance and initiative allowed the Lung Association an opportunity to visit with employees, educate them about the organization’s mission, and get involved and excited about the climb. Kevin is a shining example of a volunteer, especially for a first timer, and the American Lung Association feels especially grateful to have his support.
