John Smitson

Board and Executive Leadership Team member

We’re proud to put Board and Executive Leadership Team member, John Smitson, in the spotlight for his dedicated work and fundraising efforts with the American Lung Association in Indiana. 

As a member of the Executive Leadership Team, John worked to secure community support and sponsorship dollars for the 2011 Fight for Air Climb and 2011 Fight for Air Walk. His leadership set the bar for participation and as an individual raised an amazing $28,500 for the Lung Association in 2011 through sponsorship and personal gift solicitations.

John doesn’t just volunteer for our events, he participates in them as well. For our 2011 Fight for Air Climb, he was the top fundraising individual in the state of Indiana. When his efforts we’re compared with the rest of the Lung Association’s “Upper Midwest” region (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota & Wisconsin) John was the top individual fundraiser AGAIN.

John is the Vice President and General Manager at Cummins Crosspoint.  Married to Laura of 23 years, he has three lovely children: Casey, Gretchen and Eric.  Aside from supporting the American Lung Association, he enjoys family time at the lake house at Lake Maxinkuckee, playing golf, kids sporting events and joking around with friends.

Thank you and congratulations to John Smitson for his committed volunteer work and his amazing fundraising efforts. This year’s events wouldn’t have been as successful without you!
