Improve your own health while restoring the smile of someone in need: Join the Virtual Race for Smiles, which benefits the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation’s (AACDCF) Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program.
GBAS restores the smiles and lives of those who have suffered dental injuries from intimate partner, family, or sexual violence through the help of volunteer dental teams and donations. Upon receiving their new smiles, survivors report a significant increase in self-esteem, more employment opportunities and often a sense of closure.
The race, which will be held Oct. 11, offers participants a chance to get active while supporting a great cause. Each registrant will receive a 2014 Race for smiles t-shirt to wear during a physical activity of their choice at any location of their choice. Participants can post photos of themselves wearing the shirt while running or walking on Oct. 11 from anywhere in the world. If they use the hashtag #RaceForSmiles2014...
