Our WellShare tobacco team participated in the annual Somali Week which took place in various Twin Cities locations on July 1st to July 8th. The Somali week is the largest celebration of the Somali community in Minnesota. It consists of family-friendly events, such as the Somali Independence Day celebration, soccer and basketball tournaments, as well as performances showcasing the Somali culture and art.
Here are some photos showing participants of the soccer tournament speaking out against tobacco use. For this event, WellShare partnered with the West Bank Athletic Club to have the event be entirely smoke-free.
