Oral Cancer Walk

June 15, 2013

Time: 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Location: St. John's Episcopal Church, 50 E. Fisher, Detroit (near Comerica Park)


Join your friends, family, the Student National Dental Association, Student National Dental Hygienists' Association and the UDM School of Dentistry in raising money and awareness for oral cancer.

Oral, head and neck cancer is a silent killer of over 7,000 American men and women each year. Major risk factors are tobacco and heavy alcohol use, but this disease can strike anyone. If detected in its earliest stages oral cancer is easily treated.

Registration for the walk begins at 8:30 a.m., and the walk begins at 9 a.m., rain or shine. The first 300 walkers to register will receive a T-shirt with the Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Walk logo. All walkers must have at least one sponsor and walkers must collect a minimum of $20 in sponsorship.

Complete information, pledge and registration forms can be found on the School of Dentistry event site.

Fee: $20 minimum

RSVP: Unnecessary
