Three days and 100 miles for the American Lung Association

FBT Charleston Member Charles (Chuck) Johnson served as chair of the 2017 Greenbrier River Trail Bike Trek, a fundraising event benefitting the American Lung Association. The event, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is a three-day, 100-mile ride on the Greenbrier River Trail in West Virginia, offering breathtaking views for bicyclists traversing one of the most remote areas in the state. After long days of riding, the cyclists enjoyed a band performance one evening and a beer reception on another, offered by Chuck and one of his clients in the craft beer industry.

Governor Jim Justice declared Friday, May 19, 2017, “Greenbrier River Trail Bike Trek Day” in honor of the volunteers and staff who make the annual bike trek a success in raising awareness and support for the American Lung Association. The funds raised during the 2017 event - $85,000 in total - will benefit the American Lung Association in West Virginia and support its mission of saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through research, advocacy and education.

Chuck, who is the vice chair of the American Lung Association’s West Virginia chapter, serves clients from FBT’s Charleston office, where he represents businesses in all commercial matters. He works with providers, physicians and other health care professionals, as well as financial institutions, energy development firms, craft breweries and other businesses in a range of highly regulated environments and complex transactions and agreements.
