  • Run to Quit Program

    Run to Quit is a new quit-smoking program that pairs the expertise of the Canadian Cancer Society with Running Room Canada’s Learn to Walk/Run 5 km clinics. There are many physical and emotional benefits to walking and running. Evidence shows that running can help people cope with discomfort and cravings while cutting down and quitting smoking. Becoming smoke-free is the biggest prize of all for smokers but if you join Run to Quit and succeed in quitting by the contest target dates, you could win a cash prize of $1,000. If you go the extra step and complete a 5 km walk or run event by July 31, you may be eligible to win the grand prize valued at $25,000, a 2017 Honda Civic, or one of 13 cash prizes totaling $16,000! You can join a Run to Quit 10-week training program (in-store or online) or you can do it yourself with helpful quit-smoking resources. Two Teck Trail Operations’ employees are just wrapping up the program, accessed online, and have reportedly quit smoking. . Gord Menelaws, Inspiring Wellness and Learning Coordinator, caught up with the Canadian Cancer Society before Teck signed up to participate to explain why he felt the program was a good fit for Teck employees. “Teck Trail Operations has been a smoke-free site for a number of years and those of us who have ever smoked in the past realize just how extremely difficult it can be to kick the habit,” says Gord, a former smoker himself. Gord knows all too well how exercise can keep the cravings at bay. He admits the program’s method is the exact approach he used many years ago when he quit smoking. “I knew I had to have a different option than lighting up in certain situations in my life – one of them was to deal with stress,” he explains. “I substituted walking for smoking to begin with, and soon it led to running.” A month in and Gord was hooked on his new healthy habit. Though he didn’t quit cold turkey, nor did butting out stick on the first attempt, the concept got him through his cravings and he is happy to live an active smoke-free lifestyle today.
