Kids in Texas will unite against tobacco use as they join thousands of young people nationwide to mark Kick Butts Day, an annual day of youth activism sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
This year, kids are focused on kicking Juul, the e-cigarette that has become enormously popular among youth across the country.
On Friday, March 22, students at Saint Joseph Academy in Brownsville will celebrate “Tobacco Prevention Day.” Students will hear from a pulmonologist and a faculty/student panel at a school-wide assembly, participate in science lessons explaining the effects of tobacco use, create tobacco prevention posters, and hold a rally during final period.
Event begins at 2:00 p.m. located at 101 Saint Joseph Drive in Brownsville. Contact: Vilma Wolfe at 956-551-5844.
