It's that time of year - time to PerioDash! 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 registration fee will earn you a limited edition PerioDash 2018 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 will be happy to print your team name on the back of your t-shirts, as long as your team is registered by September 7th. 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 our inaugural year, 2015, to 150 last year, we hope to see another record-breaking year. Thank you to all who make this event such a success! We look forward to seeing you all in your shirts again this year!
