Green Mountain Electric Supply to Return as Presenting Sponsor for Annual LUNG FORCE Walk in Burlington
Northeast electric and renewable energy supply company to use business to help Lung Association spread its mission to improve lung health and prevent lung disease
(December 8, 2015) -
The American Lung Association of the Northeast is pleased to announce Green Mountain Electric Supply as the presenting sponsor of its LUNG FORCE Walk Burlington for a second year. The walk will be held on Thursday, June 23 at Battery Park. Along with its $10,000 sponsorship, Green Mountain Electric Supply will be implementing numerous promotions to raise lung health awareness among its employees and customers and will have a team of employees participating in the walk. Green Mountain Electric will continue to hold lung cancer awareness programs internally.
“The American Lung Association in Vermont is honored to have Green Mountain Electric Supply as our presenting sponsor for our LUNG FORCE Walk for a second year,” said Jeff Seyler, President & CEO of the American Lung Association of the Northeast. “Last year’s efforts were targeted towards the more than 90,000 Vermonters suffering from lung disease. The company’s continuous efforts to raise awareness about the importance of lung health are vital to us fulfilling our lifesaving mission. We hope to continue to work with Green Mountain Electric Supply for many years to come,” Seyler said.
Last May, the American Lung Association launched its LUNG FORCE movement to raise awareness and much needed funds to help defeat lung cancer in women. Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women. Yet, the disease is not even on women’s radar, according to the American Lung Association’s Women’s Lung Health Barometer — a survey that measured women’s awareness, knowledge and perceptions about lung cancer. When asked to identify cancers that affect women, only 1 percent cited lung cancer on a top-of-mind basis. The public can learn more and join the movement at LungForce.org.
For over 60 years, Green Mountain Electric Supply has been providing New York, Vermont and New Hampshire with innovative solutions to the electrical and renewable energy industries.
“Green Mountain Electric Supply looks forward to partnering with the American Lung Association for another year. We feel honored to be part of this event and support such an important cause,” said Karen Laber, Marketing Executive for Green Mountain Electric Supply.
