PerioDash 2020 is ON!

So many things in 2020 have been cancelled or changed, but PerioDash is sticking around! Since its inception 6 years ago, PerioDash has been a virtual event. You pick a day within our event window (October 1 - 15) and complete your 5K your way, whether that's outside, on a treadmill, running, walking, alone or with friends! Your $35 registration fee entitles you to a commemorative PerioDash 2020 t-shirt and medal. Register today!

Registration looks a little different this year, since we're unable to send t-shirts out from our offices. To register, visit

and place your t-shirt order. The price of the t-shirt includes your full registration. You can enter your team name in the notes section of the order form, and it will be included on the back of the shirt. Your shirt will ship directly from CustomInk, the company we've used since the birth of PerioDash. Registration is open through October 15th.

Thank you for your support of the AAP Foundation! Happy Dashing!
