Automotive giveaway to fuel drive to quit smoking

Quitting smoking or tobacco use for the month of March could win a member of the UWindsor community a new Ford Fusion hybrid or Ford Edge, one of two $5,000 dream vacation getaways or one of seven $2,000 cash prizes, reports the campus Leave The Pack Behind team.

The students, working out of the health promotion office, are registering participants in the Driven to Quit Challenge.

To enter:

  1. Choose a buddy who will support you as you go tobacco-free. If you win, your buddy will receive a $200 cash prize!
  2. Register by February 29 at
  3. Quit smoking or tobacco use by March 1 and remain tobacco-free for the month.

Have you already quit recently? You may be eligible to enter too! Check the eligibility criteria for more details.

Free self-help booklets, “One Step At A Time,” are available at the CAW Student Centre information desk. For even more support, the Leave The Pack Behind team will have booths set up in the centre, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visitors can have a carbon monoxide test and receive other materials from the student staff.
