Start Running, Stop Smoking

The Run SMART Project has partnered with the Scranton Running Co and their latest initiative, The Oxygen Project. The goal of the project is to help participants quit smoking through a “running-centric fitness routine, which harnesses the power of group therapy.”

Run SMART is excited to be involved in such an innovative approach to a serious problem that affects everyone. It is estimated that over 50,000 people die each year due to secondhand smoke inhalation. The Project aims to make a regular fitness routine the primary method to combat addiction, unlike most smoking cessation programs. Run SMART will provide 15-weeks of customized training for each participant.
