  • Hoops for Heart Facts of the Day:

    • Did you know that each day, 3,000 children in the U.S. begin smoking? The average first-time smoker is 12 1\2 years old and becomes a daily smoker by 18!

    • The average smoker spends over $700 a year on cigarettes.  If you put the money that a smoker spends on cigarettes each year into a savings account at 5% interest, you would have more than $25,000 after 20 years.
