The “Quit Cold Turkey Trot” will be held Thursday, Nov. 28 at 10 a.m.

The Carbon Tobacco Prevention Program, a service of Beartooth Billings Clinic, along with Beartooth Recreational Trails Association will host the 10th annual “Quit Cold Turkey Trot”, a community 5K fun walk/ run to stomp out tobacco use. The event will be held Thursday, November 28, (Thanksgiving Day) at 10 a.m. As part of the “Great American Smoke-out” participants will meet at the Edgar Gruel building at the Fairgrounds (located at the south end of Rodeo Road off Highway 78) and then walk or run a segment of the Airport Loop of the Rocky Fork Trail, near the Red Lodge Airport. There is no charge for the Trot, but participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for BareTooth Cupboards.

The Great American Smoke-out is an annual day of action promoted by the American Cancer Society challenging people to quit using tobacco, if only for one day. The day raises awareness of the many effective ways to quit for good. Montanans who smoke will join others nationwide to give up cigarettes and other tobacco products for 24 hours. This one-day effort could mark

the first day of a life free from

tobacco addiction for Montana smokers, spit tobacco and e-cig users, and the start of a tobacco-free Montana. For assistance in quitting the tobacco habit, call the free Montana Quit Line, 1-800-QUIT-NOW.

For more information or to register for the Turkey Trot, call Jean Atherly, Tobacco Prevention Specialist, at 406-860-3825 or email TurkeyTrot@beartoothbillingsclinic.org. Registration forms are available at Beartooth Billings Clinic Registration, downtown at Sylvan Peak, or online at the Beartooth Billings Clinic website; type “Turkey Trot” in the search bar in upper right.
