Quit and Win!
Would you rather quit, reduce or stay smoke-free for a chance to win cash? The Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit, in partnership with the provincial organization Leave the Pack Behind, is hosting the annual wouldurather… contest. Aimed at motivating young adults to quit smoking, reduce their smoking, or just stay-smoke-free for a chance to win up to $2,500 cash, the 6-week contest is an important strategy to help tackle the high rates of smoking among young adults 18-29 years old (18% of Ontario young adults smoke compared to 13% of the general population).
