UK Celebrates “Kick Butts Day”
They displayed a tarp with painted hand prints, each print representing 5 Kentuckians who died from tobacco use over the last year.
It was a party-like atmosphere, engaging students with free giveaways, and educational games.
Activists hope the event changes lives.
"There’s an outstanding number of people who die every year due to tobacco, and that they will want to empower somebody to quit, or they’ll think about quitting themselves," said Fadyia Lowe, a tobacco treatment specialist.
The UK soccer teams also helped to kick butts.
