OSF Healthcare collecting pledges for Kick Butts Day

WMBD This Morning

 Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco. Additionally, OSF HealthCare is supporting the Kick Butts Day #BeTheFirst initiative by collecting pledges from teens to stay tobacco-free. These cards will be delivered to lawmakers as they consider legislation to raise the minimum age for sale of all tobacco products from 18 to 21 in the state of Illinois.
Select students will be chosen to travel to Springfield and represent our youth. They will present all of the postcards to legislators on March 20 to commemorate Kick Butts Day.
