Join students and colleagues across the country as we show our support for the AAP Foundation and our dedication to our specialty. PerioDash is a "virtual" run, which means you can run or walk your 5K wherever you want, on your own schedule within our 2-week window: October 1 - 15. You can even complete your 5K on a treadmill!
Your $35 regsitration fee will earn you a limited edition PerioDash 2019 t-shirt and medal, along with the satisfaction that comes from doing something good for yourself and your specialty. If you are not able to participate in PerioDash, you can always make a gift to the Foundation in support of others who are running or walking.
Are you interested in forming a team? Go for it! We have had teams from schools, practice groups, and companies in the past, and a good time has been had by all.
From 50 participants in 2015 to roughly 200 last year, we hope to make 2019 another record-breaking year. Thanks to all of you for making PerioDash a success!
Special thanks to A-Titan for their sponsorship of this event.
