Get ready for PerioDash 2022!

Are you ready to PerioDash? We hope so! PerioDash is the AAP Foundation's 5K run/walk to support periodontal education, research, and excellence. Participate on your schedule, when it's convenient for you, by yourself or with a team. Your $35 registration fee includes a t-shirt and medal! Register here.

This year's event will take place October 1 - 15, whenever works for you within that window. 

Not a runner? You can always donate to support your specialty and your favorite team! The school team and practice team that raises the most for the AAP Foundation this year will receive a special prize!

New this year:

  • Select "Traditional Registration" for a registration that includes a t-shirt and medal, or choose a registration option without a shirt, a medal, or both.
  • Want to buy some PerioDash swag? This year you can add water bottles or cooling towels to your purchase!
  • Upgrade your PerioDash shirt to a moisture wicking version for an extra $10.
  • Just want to donate? Use the registration form for that, too. You can even direct your donation to a specific team's fundraising total by entering a team name under "additional information."

Register ASAP to ensure your shirts reach you in time for your PerioDash!
