National Kick Butts Day

By

As part of National Kick butts day, Marion County students will take a stand against tobacco. Students Working Against Tobacco will team up with anti-tobacco activist Chad Bullock to host a four day event across Marion County. Marion County Health Department Health Education Supervisor Evelyn James says the main focus is to empower kids.

“Kick Butts Day is actually an annual national observance. The focus is to really encourage young people to become more vocal in terms of advocating about what the tobacco industry is doing, specifically in targeting them with specific products.”

James says they will also focus on candy-flavored tobacco targeted towards kids and the local retailers who provide them.
