« REGISTER TODAY: WALK FOR AWARENESS · SATURDAY, SEPT. 14 »

WSDA JOINS FIGHT AGAINST ORAL CANCER AS PLATINUM SPONSOR OF ANNUAL WALK · SIGN UP HERE TODAY!
The Oral Cancer Foundation Walk for Awareness—Seattle is a family-friendly FUNdraising event for the entire community! Spreading awareness and early detection are key to survival. Please join the Oral Cancer Foundation — along with your colleagues, patients and friends — on Saturday, September 14, at Magnuson Park in Seattle, to learn about oral cancer and make a difference! The Washington State Dental Association has joined the fight against oral cancer by agreeing to be a Platinum-level sponsor of this important community event.

Last year, the event had more than 300 participants and raised in excess of $60,000 for the Oral Cancer Foundation. This year, the Oral Cancer Foundation Seattle Walk for Awareness (formerly the Seattle Save the Face Race) will continue those efforts. The Walk will send the critically important message of early detection and prevention, not only to the general public, but also to our dentists, who are the front-line specialists in screening for and detecting this disease at its earliest, most curable stages. The event will include free oral cancer screenings provided by Seattle area dentists and hygienists, a silent auction, food and beverages, speakers and more!

Participants signing up after Saturday, August 24 will receive a free t-shirt on a first come, first served basis. Cost is $20 for students $25 for walkers to pre-register, $30 day of the event. Oral cancer survivors are free. Children five and under are free, children ages 6-10 are $10.

Online registration closes at 12 pm on Friday, September 13th. After this date please register in person the morning of the walk with cash/check/money order made payable to The Oral Cancer Foundation. For more details, visit their page here.

All proceeds will benefit the Oral Cancer Foundation, a national public service, non-profit entity designed to reduce suffering and save lives through prevention, education, research, advocacy, and support activities.
