Michigan Kick Butts Day Events Target Getting Kids to be Smoke-Free
Kids were kicking butts across Michigan today in places like Grand Rapids, Grand Haven and Hastings, but it wasn't because they were bullying their peers.
They were standing up to Big Tobacco as part of the 20th annual Kick Butts Day.
On Kick Butts Day, kids encourage their peers to stay tobacco-free while raising awareness about the health issues caused by tobacco products in an effort organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
In Grand Haven, there was a gathering with an anti-tobacco pledge at the U.S. Coast Guard station's memorial wall.
