Julie Griffith

Chairperson of the 2011 Executive Leadership Team

Julie Griffith, Vice President of Government Affairs at Duke Energy, has graciously agreed to serve as the Chairperson of the American Lung Association in Indiana's 2011 Executive Leadership Team. 


Within the last three months, Julie has worked diligently to pull together a remarkable committee of approximately 17 volunteers representing some of Indianapolis's largest and most philanthropic companies, 10 of which are new partners of the Association’s.  Under Julie's leadership, the Executive Leadership Team is working to secure $200,000 in corporate sponsorship for the Fight For Air Climb in March of 2011 and the Fight For Air Run/Walk in June of 2011.  The committee is also working to secure the participation of employees at the represented companies.  These new participants not only help to ensure the success of our events, but offer the Lung Association hundreds of new advocates for the cause as we work together to one day achieve our vision of a world free of lung disease. 


The American Lung Association in Indiana is incredibly grateful for Julie's determination to succeed in raising substantial funding for our mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.  Not only does she lead by example, but she understands the hardships associated with lung disease and works to alleviate them for all Hoosiers.  On behalf of the American Lung Association in Indiana's Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and the Hoosiers we serve, we thank Julie Griffith.
