One-Mile Fun Run begins at 9:00 a.m.
Mighty Mouth 5k begins at 9:30 a.m.
Where: Mitch Park
1501 W Covell Road
Edmond, Oklahoma 73003
Why: Funds from the Mighty Mouth 5K and Fun Run will be used to educate the public about oral hygiene, to improve access to preventive care for the underserved and invest in mobile/portable dental equipment and supplies to use in future public health projects such as health fairs, school screenings, sealant programs and projects for underserved children and adults in areas in need of preventive oral health services.
What have we accomplished so far? Funds from the 2018 event were donated to the Hope Dental Clinic. Tina Tuck, representative for the Oklahoma Dental Hygienists’ Association, presented a grant check to President, Neva Pyatt, for $3,843.97 to help with operations of the Hope Dental Clinic! This organization provides much needed dental care for the underserved.
Part of last year’s funds were used to purchase portable dental chairs which the ODHA will use and make available for use for public health projects. If interested in using these portable chairs, please contact our ODHA President, Laurie Cunningham, for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
