Join us in "Race to Quit, NC"

New Campaign Dedicated to Providing NC Tobacco Users with the Help They Need to Quit

  • North Carolina has made great strides to curb tobacco addiction, but we still rank 12th among states with the highest concentration of smokers.
  • Every year, tobacco use (second-hand smoke notwithstanding) kills more people than alcohol, automobile accidents, AIDS, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined.  We know the vast majority of tobacco users know of these dangers and have tried unsuccessfully to quit, but they might not be aware of the support that exists to help them in the fight.
  • That’s why the North Carolina Alliance for Healthy Communities(NCAHC) has joined withmore than 50 other organizations – including leading patient groups, health care delivery systems, nonprofits, and state and local agencies – to launch "Race to Quit, NC."
  • This groundbreaking campaign represents the first time that the state’s leading health care advocateshave come together to offer North Carolinians help they need to win their battles with smoking and tobacco use.
  • During the Race to Quit, NC launch week October 5-9, campaign partners will hold events in Raleigh and Charlotte to raise awareness of the campaign and to promote the campaign website (www.ncallianceforhealth.org/race-to-quit-nc/). The site, which has launched but is still being fully developed, will feature educational materials and comprehensive resources to help tobacco users quit. You can also follow the campaign on social media via the hashtag #RacetoQuitNC.
  • We’ll be sending more updates on Race to Quit as the campaign moves forward, and we hope you will join us in telling others about it. You can find a printable flyer on the Race to Quit, NC website – please feel free to use it in promoting the campaign.
  • Together, we can help North Carolinians break the cycle of tobacco use and cross the finish line to a tobacco-free life.
