Come Celebrate the Great American Smokeout With Us!

The American Cancer Society’s Great American Smoke Out (GASO) is an annual event in which smokers are encouraged to quit. This year, GASO is on November 20th and we are going to be celebrating in Indianapolis! There will be a large event with many participating organizations along with the American Cancer Society including; Riley Hospital, The Indiana University Simon Cancer Center, Wishard Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Riley Hospital and the IUPUI Student Campus Center. There will be events at all of the participating organizations, encouraging smokers to quit and educating them about the health benefits of quitting. Smoke Free Indy will be celebrating at the IUPUI Campus Center. Not only will we be encouraging people to quit, we will also be educating about the dangers of secondhand smoke. Smokers who want to trade in their cigarettes can register to win a Wii and will receive 2 free weeks at a local gym and discounted food from the IUPUI food court.

So, come join us at the IUPUI Campus Center on November 20th from 10am-2pm. We will also have a Wii to play and other games in which you can register to win a Wii and other prizes. I f you can’t make it, tell a friend or loved one who smoke about the Great American Smoke Out and encourage them to quit, even if just for one day.
