The Lung Institute participated in Kick Butts Day for the second year in a row, raising awareness about the dangers of smoking tobacco by hosting an event in downtown Tampa, Fla. at Lykes Gaslight Square Park. Employees passed out quit kits and engaged the community in a game where participants kicked giant stuffed cigarette butts into a trash can. With this event we hoped to encourage youth to stand up against big tobacco, and also to encourage smokers to quit to reduce their risk of contracting a pulmonary disease. Our employees had a great time raising awareness about lung health in Tampa.
