Yorkshire Smokefree Calderdale raise awareness for Stoptober and Breathe 2025
Published at 10 September, 2018.
Last week Yorkshire Smokefree Calderdale teamed up with Illingworth ARLFC for a fantastic event, raising awareness of Stoptober and promote the Breathe2025 campaign message.
The Breathe 2025 vision is this: to see the next generation of children born and raised in a place free from tobacco, where smoking is unusual.
This year, the children completed a 4.8 mile walk around Bolton Abbey in North Yorkshire and helped spread the message about the importance of a smokefree generation.
Since the completion of the walk, Illingworth ARLFC has made Breathe2025 a central part of their social media posts to encourage parents to actively discuss the dangers of smoking. There's also been a surge in pledges!
The event was a great success, with numerous pledges made! You can see them on the Breathe2025 website here.
Everyone involved made the day a great success and we look forward to raising more awareness in the future.
Well done Calderdale Smokefree and Illingworth ARLFC!
