Thanks to all who participated in the 2014 Oral Cancer Foundation Walk for Awareness!

 
According to organizers of the walk, this year record numbers of participants gathered for the event — with 31% more walkers than last year! And, while official donation talleys were not yet available, event representatives noted that with 376 registered walkers this year, they expect donations to be up signicantly as well. In fact, there were so many people who signed up on the day of the event, that they ran out of event tee shirts. Never fear, they're sending out an email blast to thank everyone and let those who did not receive a shirt know how to get one. Thanks to everyone who participated in this great cause!

We will be following up with individual communications between key legislators and our lobbyists and grassroots dentists.
