The Manitoba Lung Association will hold a second annual quit smoking and win contest. Last year we had 1,600 participants make a quit attempt in order to be eligible for cash prizes.
Manitoba residents, age 18 and over, are eligible to enter. Visit www.manitobaquits.ca for contest details and to register. Each participant must enter with a buddy (smoker or non-smoker) and pledge to stay absolutely smoke-free from May 1 to May 31. A random draw to determine potential winners will be held June 1. After verification of smoke-free status, winners will be declared. There are five prizes of $1,000 each. Buddies of the winners will also win $200 each and there are also Early Bird prizes just for registering. The contest is sponsored by the Lung Association and Manitoba Healthy Living.
