Proceeds of this race benefit oral cancer awareness.  

An estimated 10,030 individuals, in the United States, die every year from oral cancer. This statistic has remained relatively stagnant over the past 10 years. It is the Northwest Indiana Dental Society's goal to increase public awareness of oral cancer symptoms and risk factors, to increase early detection.
