Mark your calendar for Kick Butts Day 2017!

Posted by Gustavo Torrez on 4 Oct 2016

Kicks Butts Day is less than six months away! On Wednesday, March 15, youth leaders, advocates and teachers will stand up to the tobacco industry and join together at events highlighting the deadly toll of tobacco.

Advocates held over 1,000 events this past Kick Butts Day. They delivered a clear and powerful message: This is how #iKickButts and I won’t stop until we end the tobacco epidemic. The events were creative, and they engaged new advocates in the fight against tobacco.

But we’re not satisfied; we can’t be when tobacco kills six million people worldwide every year and Big Tobacco continues to market its deadly products in ways that appeal to young people. We’re counting on you to not be satisfied either and to join us in making Kick Butts Day 2017 the most powerful we’ve ever had.

Registration opens in November, but here are a few ways to get a head start:


Check out the #iKickButtsgallery, find out what events took place in your state, or brush up on Big Tobacco’s 7 Slick Tricks to Target Kids.


If you’re new to Kick Butts Day or a veteran looking to shake things up, the activities database is a great place to start. You can sort activities by age range and budget to ensure you find the perfect activity for your group.


As March 15 approaches, we’ll unveil opportunities to fund your event, train advocates, apply for Youth Advocate of the Year Awards and maximize your impact with our webinar series, which starts in November.

Update your Kick Butts Day account, or create one, and join our mailing list to have all the latest updates sent right to your inbox.

And make sure to stay connected with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
