Debbie Burdorf has been a true Ambassador for the American Lung Association in Kentucky. Since Louisville’s first Fight for Air Climb in 2014, Debbie has served on the Climb planning team, speaking to community groups, recruiting new climbers and participating in media interviews for the climb. Debbie also organized Team Semonin, one of Louisville’s largest and most successful fundraising teams.
Debbie also serves as Co-Director of "A Breath of Fresh Air", the civic advocacy group producing the October Big Screen Bash for American Lung Association in Kentucky. Debbie’s enthusiasm and support is integral in this unique and exciting October affair that attracts corporate, medical, civic and media leaders throughout the community.
As a community connector, Debbie is always on the lookout for new opportunities to get individuals and corporate groups involved. She has secured corporate sponsorships for the Breath of Fresh Air, benefit donations for our live auction, and countless new volunteers for the Breath of Fresh Air group.
“I have gained more than I have given to the American Lung Association in Kentucky,” Debbie says. “I believe a healthy body and mind work well together and I can see myself being involved with the Climb and American Lung Association for years to come!”
