Today, smokers who want to quit can register for the 3rd annual QuitNow and WIN provincial contest. Everyone who participates is eligible for a much healthier life, but only the grand prize winner takes home $5,000 cash! In helping with the promotion of this contest the fine folks at QuitNow.ca have given me 3 sets of 4 tickets to Body Worlds at Science World to give away! I’ll be giving away 4 tickets each week for the next 3 weeks to one lucky reader. See below for contest details.
Organized by the BC Lung Association and supported by grant funding from the Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport, the contest requires smokers to engage a buddy for daily support.
In addition, smokers are encouraged to make use of QuitNow supports including a confidential helpline (1.877.455.2233) with information available in 130 languages and an online quit community where professional and peer support is available 24/7. Quitters can also sign up for email quit tips and texts, join QuitNow’s Twitter and Facebook pages and explore interactive quit tools and resources at quitnow.ca.
In total, the QuitNow and WIN contest offers $20,000 in cash prizes thanks to prize sponsor McNeil Consumer Healthcare. These include a $5,000 grand prize, five $1,000 regional prizes, and 14 weekly draw prizes ranging from $500 to $1000. For contest details visit quitnow.ca. A little confused?
