Chad Campbell

Chad Campbell, branch manager at Fairwinds Credit Union, is an active volunteer with the American Lung Association of Florida, Central Area.  Inspired by his brother's struggle to control his asthma, Chad now works to help others who have asthma.

"My nature is giving, so I like to give back" he says of his volunteer work. "Whether it's a thank you or a smile, I think it's important to help others when you can."

For Chad, the community involvement of Fairwinds Credit Union was a key factor for him when choosing to work with the company. He believes in volunteering with an association that he can truly connect with. Fortunately, the American Lung Association's mission is one Chad strongly believes in. He is currently serving as the event chair for the South Lake Leadership Board. He has been actively volunteering for the past year and played a large role in starting the South Lake Fight for Air Asthma Walk. Reflecting back, Chad says organizing the walk was a good first time experience. He is excited about how much money and awareness were raised and said that in the future, he would like to see growth in the number of board members, more involvement from Lake County, and greater awareness in the community and schools.

"Getting the community involved is vital to initiatives like the Fight for Air Asthma Walk," he said. "Luckily, we saw lots of enthusiasm from Lake County residents, and I'm looking forward to making the walk a tradition in the area".
