Going smoke free is netting University of Southern Indiana a commendation from the American Cancer Society. A presentation will be made during an 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cancer Action Network-sponsored rally on Tuesday, September 20 at the outdoor amphitheatre near the University Center. All students, faculty, staff, and general public are welcome to attend

The University of Southern Indiana became a tobacco free campus on July 1 of this year. Tara Hagan, director of the Southwest Indiana Office of the American Cancer Society, will welcome students, local cancer survivors, and volunteers who will gather at USI to celebrate the organization's 10 years of saving lives from cancer through public policy. David Enzler, director of USI Recreation, Fitness, and Wellness and co-chair of the tobacco free implementation committee, will announce the schedule for smoking cessation classes available at USI for students and employees.

Birthday cake will be served in celebration of the 10th anniversary of ACS-CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society. Volunteers will be collecting stories of moments people have reached in their lives thanks to breakthroughs in cancer research. Volunteers who are preparing to travel to Washington D.C. on September 25 will deliver the stories to members of Congress asking for a future with no cancer and calling on Congress to protect funding for cancer research.

The USI event will be one of hundreds of events across the United States.
