WleDonald's of&tenviI 2- oIo r I Raze Teens make 11 in Statewide "Commotion" Raze crews highlighted the toll of tobacco use in West Virginia by build- ing a series of memorials in 20 high schools and middle schools across the state on Wed., Nov. 17. These memorials included the names of loved ones who have died from cancer, heart disease, emphy- sema, and other diseases caused by smoking or spit tobacco. Raze mem- bers also urged students to quit using tobacco and asked them to encourage ~hcir family and friends to do the same. The event occurred one day before the 28th Great American Smoke-out. sponsored by the Ameri- can Cancer Society. "Each year smoking kills over 4,000 West Virginians," said Paul Nusbaum, secretary for the Department of Health and Human Resources ~that funds the Raze program. "One in five West Virginians will die from tobacco-related illnesses. There are no memorials or monu- ments to these victims of tobacco use, so the Raze teens constructed memo- rials across the state," Nusbaum said. According to Nusbaum, recent sta- tistics show that West Virginia To- bacco Prevention Programs since 1999 have saved the state $680 mil- lion in health care costs. The West Virginia Health Statistics Center cal- culates that 37,779 fewer youths smoke today than five years ago. Raze in West Virginia's teens-led anti-tobacco movement that has helped cut high school smoking by 32 percent since 1999. Its mission is to empower teens to tear down the lies of the tobacco industry and expose Big Tobacco's dishonest marketing prac- tices. The memorials were constructed in the morning and remained in place all day. Among the following schools that participated were: Braxton Middle School, Buckhannon-Upshur High' School. and Wirt County High School. For more information, call Keith Dalton at (304) 343-2800.
