Athletes Step Up

February 11, 2019

It's no secret that vaping is a popular but unhealthy practice. In response, student-athletes in Shasta County, Calif., are joining an "Athletes Don't Vape" campaign, as reported by krcrtv.com.

On Sunday, more than 100 student-athletes gathered in Redding, Calif., to take a pledge against vaping. They donned Tshirts that said "Athletes Don't Vape" and posed for photos.

The athletes were nominated for the group by their coaches. The organization is hoping student leaders can convince their peers that vaping is simply not cool. 

One of the student-athletes who participated was Alex Beltran, a football player for Red Bluffs High School.

"I know it's not healthy for my body, first of all. And, that if I keep doing, I'm not going to have a good career in football because you need your lungs for football and I want to play college football and if I keep vaping or smoking whatever it's not going to go my way," Beltran said.
