LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Young people and their parents are participating in a campaign Wednesday in Lexington to try to reduce smoking.
Their work is part of the 17th annual Kick Butts Day, and the Smoke-Free Kentucky group says 1,100 events are planned nationwide.
The Lexington crew is gathering at the YMCA of Central Kentucky from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to participate in tobacco prevention activities.
The events are organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. That group's president, Matthew L. Myers, says the group wants elected officials to support higher tobacco taxes, strong smoke-free laws and well-funded tobacco prevention programs.
