University of Kentucky Celebrates 4th Anniversary of Tobacco-Free Campus

uktobaccofree 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/21/13) – Students and faculty at the University of Kentucky joined together Thursday to celebrate the fourth anniversary of UK's tobacco-free campus initiative. The “Big Blue Tobacco-Free Tailgate” was held at the Rose Street walkway in honor of Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

The event provided free refreshments including “cold turkey” sandwiches, s'mores and hot chocolate along with drawings for prizes, corn hole, music and information about quitting tobacco.

UK's tobacco-free initiative began Nov. 19, 2009 with the goal of making UK a healthier place to live, work and learn. The “Big Blue Tobacco-Free Tailgate” fell on the same day as the American Cancer Society's Annual Great Smoke Out, which encourages smokers to use the date to make a plan to kick the habit or to quit smoking on that day.
