5K Run

7:30AM EDT - 10:00AM EDT

Fun Walk

7:30AM EDT - 10:00AM EDT
Description

Join the UNC Student National Dental Association in the annual Oral Cancer 5K Run/Walk on Saturday June 25th, 2022 at 7:30AM!


In honor of UNC Adam’s School of Dentistry’s very own oral cancer survivor, Dr. Scott Eidson, all proceeds will be donated to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to provide accessible and affordable treatment to head and neck cancer patients throughout North Carolina.
100% of the proceeds go towards helping patients pay all the bills of miscellaneous treatment expenses - transportation to and from the hospital, additional housing expenses required for them to stay close to the hospital during their treatment, mortgage/rent and utility bills for patients who have lost income because of their cancer diagnosis, and childcare while the parent is receiving treatment.
Your support - whether by signing up and running, donating, or both - has such an important impact on all these patients' abilities to afford and get treated. Thank you for being a part of the solution today!
 
When: Saturday June 25th, 2022 at 7:30AM EST (rain or shine)
