Breathe Free Archive

Not that long ago people smoked in airplanes, offices, cars and even hospitals! We’ve come a long way, baby – but we still have a long way to go.  Currently only 10.3% of Winter Park residents and only 7.3% of Maitland residents smoke.  Join Healthy Central Florida in reducing those numbers even further.  Pledge to speak up and encourage more restaurants and public spaces to become totally smoke free.
