Live It Up Without Lighting Up Launch Party @ Scape

Live it Up Without Lighting Up Launch Event at *SCAPE, Warehouse
Hey guys!!!
Just few day back (21 Mar 2012) evening, I was at the Live It Up Without Lighting Up Launch Event held at *SCAPE, Warehouse. Lot of youth gathered for this launch event and the aim of the movement is to get youth excited about leading a tobacco-free lifestyle. It symbolises youth pursuing their talents and engaging in positive activities. It taps on the power of the individual to fight tobacco.

The Health Promotion Board is launching the 'Live It Up Without Lighitng Up' Global Movement through music and dance, mediums which resonate strongly with youth. In the show of youth solidarity and talent, the event had united 28 countries worldwide, all of whom believe in leading a smoke-free lifestyle through various activites such as:
-Pleadging their support for a smoke-free lifestyle on a monogram wall.
-Participating in a mass dance parade of over 200 youth showcasing a dance routine specially choreograghed for a song composed and remixed by local youth musician.
-Pitting their skills in a dance competition between 10 dance teams from the various educational institutions and dance schools in Singapore.
-Setting a record for the most number of Twitter followers within two hours.
