Kick Butts!

Today we hosted a Kick Butts session in the dining hall atrium. Kick Butts is a nonprofit organization that encourages middle school/high school and college age students to stop smoking. We hosted a shoe display which included 50 pairs of sho

es; each pair represents a person that dies during an one hour lunch period due to smoking related diseases. Our goal was to inform students about the resources to assist them with smoking cessation, while educating them about the harmful effects of second hand-smoke even if they don’t smoke. I’ve included a few photos of the event below.

Smoking Suzy Sweetbriar-this doll shows the effects of cigarette smoke on your lungs. Students were surprised at how much discoloration occurred after just one cigarette.
