Once again, QUITPLAN Services and ClearWay MinnesotaSM will be sharing information about quitting tobacco at the Minnesota State Fair. From August 27 through Labor Day, our booth at the corner of Cooper Street and Dan Patch Avenue will be a resource for tobacco users who have come to the Great Minnesota Get-Together.
This year we’ll be giving away free mints and water bottles as well as having a prize wheel that visitors can spin. We’ll be giving smokers free screenings to test their lung health, and smokers can view interactive presentations about QUITPLAN Services and the tobacco cessation treatments available to them.
We’ll also be promoting next year’s QuitCash ChallengeTM – a contest where smokers who successfully quit are entered into a drawing for a $5,000 prize. The contest will be in April of 2016, but tobacco users can sign up to participate in a number of “mini-quits” with separate prizes that will happen in between now and then.
We look forward to the Fair as a time to hear from people from all around our great state. Every year we talk to people who successfully quit smoking and want to tell us how they did it, current smokers interested in quitting, and individuals looking to help friends and family quit. We love hearing all perspectives, so please stop by and say hello during the Fair!
