First-Time Father-to-Be Quits Smoking, Wins $5,000 in The QuitCash Challenge(TM)
Date:11/19/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- 2009 has been a monumental year for Doug Dawson. Motivation of first-time fatherhood paired with "moneyvation," from QUITPLAN Services' QuitCash Challenge, helped the 31-year-old Columbia Heights man quit a 17-year smoking habit and win The Challenge. Nearly 2,000 Minnesotans, including Doug, attempted to quit tobacco use during October for a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize.

On Thursday, November 19, the day of the 34th annual Great American Smokeout, QUITPLAN Services will celebrate Doug's success in quitting smoking with a celebration event at the Mall of America in Bloomington. In addition to Doug's $5,000 grand prize, another contest participant will receive a $2,000 Mall of America gift card and two others will receive $1,000 Gander Mountain gift cards.

When Doug and his wife, Katie, learned they would welcome their first child, a baby boy, in March, they knew it was time to quit. Making the choice was especially important to Doug because his mother passed away, in part due to smoking, when he was only 14. After seeing The QuitCash Challenge promotion at the Minnesota State Fair, Doug decided to try quitting tobacco for good.

"It was all about the baby...to help my wife quit and to live a healthier life for me and the child," Doug said. "I went on [quitplan.com] and did the whole 'fill out your plan' to help you quit. I looked at some of the things they were saying about what to do, what to expect as the weeks went on."

"We were delighted to learn that Doug had used The QuitCash Challenge and QUITPLAN Services to help him and his family stay tobacco-free," said David Willoughby, Chief Executive Officer at ClearWay Minnesota(SM), the nonprofit organization that administers QUITPLAN Services. "We encourage Minnesota tobacco users looking to quit to use QUITPLAN Services any time of the year to achieve success."
