BECOME A SPONSOR
Our event depends on sponsors and supporters to ensure its success—this is why we are reaching out to you. Those who lend their names, participation, and financial support all contribute to the success of the event, and the overall health of our community, in the process. The fundraising event will take place on April 1st, with the Fun Run beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the 5k starting at 10 a.m. The cost to run is $35. What’s really cool about this year is the screening machines that will be on site courtesy of D-Dent, giving out free oral cancer screenings for anyone who needs them.
Why are we asking for support? Close to 43, 250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. It will cause over 8,000 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. Of those 43, 250 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. Through D-Dent, low-income, uninsured veterans, developmentally disabled, and elderly individuals receive comprehensive dental care free of charge through our network of volunteer dentists. All funds raised from this event will be used to support D-Dent’s work in your local community.
Your sponsorship fee will be used to provide assistance to those in our community whose lives are affected by poverty, those individuals who need it the most. We thank you in advance for your consideration and community involvement.
