The ADHA Institute for Oral Health, the only national foundation for the important work of dental hygienists, has something new planned for this year's national fundraiser! We’re hosting our first ever Walking Challenge, sponsored by Midwest Dental!
At the ADHA Annual Conference attendees will be able to track their steps – from Thursday, June 11 at 11:59 pm CST until Sunday, June 14 at noon CST -- using their own personal Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, or step trackers integrated on their iPhone/Android smartphone via Apple Health or Google Fit. The first 200 attendees that stop by ADHA Walking Challenge kiosk next to the registration booth will receive a complimentary tracker. (The app for step tracking will be available to download a few days before the Conference.)
Prizes will be given to the top steppers throughout Annual Conference!
For IOH….while onsite at Annual Conference, attendees can keep track of steps in real time, along with dollars raised for the Institute's national fundraiser!
Participants will create and join teams to raise funds for the Institute. The top fundraising team will receive an IOH award at the Annual Conference General Session in New Orleans!
All dollars raised will directly support our scholarship, research and community service grant programs.
New this year! No registration fees, t-shirts, or finisher medals. Attendees will be able to celebrate at an all-attendee inclusive party, sponsored by HuFriedy, on Friday, June 12! (There is no charge for the event.)
Not attending Annual Conference? No problem! You can be part of the Walking Challenge from home by joining a team and supporting the foundation!
NOW is the time to take the "first steps" to help ADHA's foundation reach its robust goal of $80,000! Create or join a team! Share your team or individual page! Information about "next steps" and other FUN and FUNDraising incentives will be coming soon!
