UNC School of Dentistry's Student National Dental Association is hosting the 2018 Oral Cancer Walk & 5K, and Post-Race Health Fair! The event (rain or shine!) is scheduled for Saturday June 30th, 2018 at 9:00AM. All profits will benefit the Oral Cancer Foundation.
Kick-off just before the race will feature UNC School of Dentistry's very own A Capella group, the Cingulums. Cool off with us after at the Post-Race Health Fair as we partner with UNC School of Medicine and UNC School of Pharmacy to offer FREE oral cancer screenings, blood pressure and glucose readings, and medication reviews on-site. Join us as we work with the community to promote oral cancer awareness!
About the Cause:
The American Cancer Society estimates over 51,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer in 2018, and approximately 1 in 5 will not survive. Profits generated from SNDA's Oral Cancer Walk & 5K will be donated to the Oral Cancer Foundation to fund life-saving research and reduce the incidence of oral and oropharyngeal cancers in the U.S. population. Be a part of the solution today!
When: Saturday June 30th, 2018 at 9:00AM (Rain or shine!). Post-race health fair to follow.
