American Lung Association in Maine Honors Cianbro with 2010 Distinguished Service Award

Cianbro's long-standing, multi-faceted relationship with the American Lung Association in Maine has led the health organization to name the construction company the winner of the 2010 Distinguished Service Award.  ALAME recognizes exceptional service to prevent lung disease and promote lung health by presenting one or more Distinguished Service Awards.  These awards are given to Maine individuals or organizations whose actions have furthered the mission of the Lung Association by improving the respiratory health of our citizens.

"As a construction company, Cianbro has a nationally recognized employee wellness program and is one of the first companies in Maine to implement a smoke free campus (construction site) policy," said Michelle Edwards, who is the New England Regional Associate for the Lung Association. "This provided other blue collar businesses the leadership they needed to implement similar employee wellness policies. In 'walking the walk,' supporting ALAME as an organization, Cianbro has sponsored a team for the Trek Across Maine for the past 14 years. In 2010, their team raised $17,000. Their motto: 'Wellness Matters to Team Cianbro.' In addition, Cianbro has been on the forefront of wind and tidal power development in Maine, improving Maine's air quality."

"We are honored to be recognized with the Distinguished Service Award from the American Lung Association in Maine," said Rick Leonard, Cianbro's strategic finance manager, and captain of the company's cycling team. "It’s a privilege as winner of the 2010 award to join the list of exceptional Maine companies that have preceded us in earning this honor. This particular award has special meaning because it identifies the many ways that our combined team efforts work to improve the health of Maine people, bring added stability to Maine’s economy through development of renewable energy alternatives, and enhance the overall quality of the lives of the people of Maine. Our actions in the areas of wellness and community involvement through the Trek Across Maine have furthered the mission of the American Lung Association in Maine and illustrate first hand that our employee-owners walk the talk when it comes to our continued commitment to investing in the people and the economy of the State of Maine."
