Event Description

Join us on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at Ludowici Community Foundation Park in New Lexington for the inaugural Dental Dash 5K Run/Walk "Go the Extra Smile". Hocking College Dental Hygiene School is hosting the first annual Dental Dash 5K Run/Walk! This is a non-profit event where all proceeds go to the Dental Hygiene Heroes club. All members of the club are current students and alumni of the Hocking College Dental Hygiene School located in New Lexington, Ohio.

The club's goal is to support dental career choices and spread awareness of oral health across all aspects. They work with anyone big or small, young or young at heart in person, teaching good oral habits and how the effects of having good oral hygiene can improve your overall health. They also mentor students who are interested in working in the dental field. The proceeds go to oral health supplies (toothbrushes, paste, floss, etc) to supply schools, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and many other locations in need and also to an annual scholarship to one lucky Hocking College hygiene student.

This is a family friendly event and will be a lot of fun for everyone, including non-runners. There will be music along the beautifully maintained wooded path and two distances to choose from depending on your skill level or desire.  We hope to see you on November 6!
