The Canucks were recently involved with a night they dedicated to Hockey Fights Cancer, which is part of the NHL’s “Biggest Assist Happens Off The Ice” campaign. With it they shared a touching story about Ehrhoff’s father’s battle with cancer and the profound effect it had on his life. QuitNow BC is ramping up its annual quit-smoking campaign in an effort to help people quit smoking and ultimately reduce their chances of lung cancer.
Smokers who would like to quit can register for the 3rd annual contest and in turn become eligible for a grand prize of $5,000. It’s a big step to take so organizers are providing resources online and off to assist participants in reaching their goals.
- Web: Sign up for online support with access to a global community of quitters at QuitNow.ca
- Social: Find QuitNow on Facebook and Twitter
- Telephone: The helpline provides counseling support in 130 languages 1-877-455-2233
“Each smoker is unique. Our overall objective is to provide smokers with tools proven to increase smokers’ chances of quit success,” said BC Lung Association Director of QuitNow Services, Jack Boomer. “The contest itself is an incentive; a reason for smokers to commit to quit, be it for the first or fifth time. In the process of registering for the contest at QuitNow.ca, we hope smokers will take advantage of the other QuitNow Services available to them.”
The QuitNow & Win contest is open for all those who sign up by January 7, 2011 at 11:59 PM.
In order to raise awareness for the campaign, QuitNowBC has asked us to give away two $100 gift certificates to the Canucks Team Store!
