Andrews Federal Credit Union recently served as a sponsor for the Great American Smokeout 5K Cold Turkey Trot held at the Joint Base Andrews Fitness Center.
The event, hosted by 779th Aerospace Medicine Squadron health promotion flight, is part of a national annual event that encourages smokers to join together to stop smoking “cold turkey” for 24 hours. By quitting – even for one day – smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life; one that can lead to reducing cancer risk. Since the annual event began, smoking on base has decreased 60%.
“It was an honor to support such a great cause,” said Andrews Federal Credit Union’s Rosalind Bishop, MD Regional Branch Manager. “Hopefully, this will kick start a new beginning in the participants lives as they seek to become smoke-free.”
The Great American Smokeout event challenges people to stop using tobacco and helps make aware the many tools they can use to help them quit and stay quit.
