Live Tobacco Free

Kick Butts Day at Mesa Middle School was a SUCCESS!

A group of Mesa Middle school students took on the challenge of coming up with an event for national Kick Butts Day. On March 18th, 2015, the MMS team hosted a "No Smoking" pledge during lunches. They came up with the slogan "Waste your Money, Waste your Life" and took pictures of local cigarette cases. The pictures were made into posters. 
Next, the students created pledge stickers. 
The goal was to have every Mesa student sign a pledge to not smoke and cover up the poster with the stickers while educating students on the dangers of tobacco.
 
We had a great turn out and the team were rock stars. 
Thank MMS for putting on an amazing pledge day.


Tobacco use is the #1 public health problem in the U.S. Over 440,000 American die yearly due to tobacco-related illnesses, including 4,300 in Colorado. Tobacco claims more lives annually than HIV, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides and murders combined. 

The tobacco industry spends $15 billion a year promoting its products to new, young customers including $113 million in Colorado.
