Feel the Vibe: Community Health Festival

Research shows that 69,000 youth in Arkansas under the age of 17 will die each year from tobacco related illnesses. It is our job as a community to educate them on the harms of tobacco use, prevent initiation of smoking, and celebrate those who decide to quit in our community. This year, we will do that and more on World NO Tobacco Day. The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on “tobacco and lung health.” The campaign will increase awareness on: the negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease, the fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people.
In Honor of World No Tobacco Day, Brandon House is hosting Feel the Vibe: Community Health Festival to introduce healthy choices, support, and resources to Little Rock residents who desire to quit smoking, raise awareness, or celebrate and promote quitting. This event will feature live entertainment, water battle activities for our youth (Water Balloon Dodgeball, Splash Tug-of-War, Splash that Ad Target Practice, and Smokers Dunking Booth), local food truck vendors, local community garden and farmer’s market produce, community health resources, and special guest performances by Dazz & Brie, Brandon House iHUSTLE, Street Team, and DreamStarters students.
All community youth and summer programs are invited, and this event is free to the community. If you would like to attend, please give us a heads up here. To participate as a team in the Water Balloon Dodgeball game, each team must register at here and the rules are below:
- – Must have between 10-20 members on the team.
