Charles Huntington, Jr. has been involved for 15 years with the American Heart Association, first as a member of the Planned Giving Committee for Philadelphia.  Most recently, he chaired the National Investment Committee and served as a member of COCC & The Science and Technology Accelerator. 

Charles has been involved with Lobby Day for 5 years and was awarded the Great Rivers Advocacy Award in 2007.  He believes that attending Lobby Day is important so that legislators know what causes are important to their constituents.  They need to know that we represent the #1 & #4 killers of all Americans and that by working together, we may one day be able to solve heart & stroke issues which plague this country.
