Our friends at Youthrise use pieces of the PATCH program and build in community based projects related to health EVERY MONTH! It is so powerful to see these teens advocating for healthier playgrounds and public spaces and educating about the negative health effects of tobacco use.YouthRise! Participated in the Butt Pick-Up at the Frankfort TPA Park yesterday. This group was dedicated through the cold and rainy weather to make a difference! *Each flag represents a tobacco product that was picked up by the leaders*
