Kids were kicking butts across Michigan today in places like Grand Rapids, Grand Haven and Hastings, but it wasn't because they were bullying their peers.

They were standing up to Big Tobacco as part of the 20th annual Kick Butts Day.

On Kick Butts Day, kids encourage their peers to stay tobacco-free while raising awareness about the health issues caused by tobacco products in an effort organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

Today, Cherry Health in Grand Rapids hosted an informational table at the agency's Leonard Street Counseling Center and gave away swag bags for trivia questions that were correctly answered.

In Grand Haven, there was a gathering with an anti-tobacco pledge at the U.S. Coast Guard station's memorial wall.

In Hastings, Barry-Eaton District Health Department hosted informational events at Biggby Coffee and Hungry Howie's.
